Trail running on Mount Wank
Sporty runners bounding over rough and smooth are a familiar sight around Mount Wank. This is not just because of the thrilling natural landscape: with its well-maintained trails and hiking paths, the panoramic mountain has established itself as a popular sport for trail runners of every ability.
The routes range from easy trails for beginners to challenging sections for highly proficient fitness fanatics. A big plus point for leisure athletes and people who just want to get away from day-to-day life: the Wankbahn cable car is a convenient way to get up or down the mountain, allowing for targeted training and joint protection. Trail runners choose their route based on individual fitness and experience, combining running fun with relaxation on the cable car.
Galloping nimbly along the trails through the forests and meadows is a great way to restore mental balance. Feel the freedom and the flow. Accompanied only by the sound of your own breathing, your focus alternates between the ground and the wide expanse of the mountain panorama. Nevertheless, trail running is not just something for loners. All generations have a fulfilling time on Mount Wank especially, thanks to the broad summit plateau and the comfortable cable car. While parents explore the terrain at a fast pace, the little ones can conquer the new children’s playground at the top station with granny and grandpa. Afterwards, they can all meet in the restaurant Sonnenalm to quench their thirst and reward themselves with crisp salads and light dishes.
