From the starting point Kurpark follow the signs through the park towards the small brook Maibachel. A few minutes after the Maibachel branch off at the height of the birch grove towards Tscheltschnigkogel. From here you run uphill over stony and rooty forest roads to the highest point of the Tscheltschnigkogel with beautiful views of Villach. At the North-Western side, you can run back down on a steep forest to the Genottenhöhe (restaurant). From the Genottenhöhe, following the signs, you have to continue downhill to the starting point.
Warmbad-Villach can be reached at regular intervals by public transport.
The route leads mostly over steep forest and forest roads, which require a safe, coordinated and controlled running technique. Sign posts (with two different runner icons) have been set up to differentiate the trail-running tracks from the normal running tracks and are visible on signposts on the way.
