Description

From Puchberg am Schneeberg, go to Schneebergdörfl and then to Schwabenhof where the paved road ends (774m). Take the unpaved forest road towards the E, for about a km, where the fields on the left end.

(~880m) Walk up the path through the forest to point 1180m (direction Schneidegraben), or cycle along the forest road to the same point. From there, go up the scree to 1337m where the scree crosses a horizontal path (signpost).

Take it toward the NW (direction Bürklehütte) for about 500m until your reach a viewpoint.

This is where the Novembergrat really starts. Follow the faint red circles along the ridge to the SW, and go up the ridge to the summital plateau at 1800m.

From there, either go for a beer at the nearby Damböckhütte, or go to the summit of Schneeberg 1.5 km away, along a wide and flatish road full of tourists who came up with the train... Down: either the same way, down the scree of the Schneidergraben (very fast if you have good shoes and knees), or via the Herminenstieg (similar terrain to the Novembergrat, which starts just below the cross of the Waxriegel behind the hut). <br/><br/>_This Adventure has been shared under the [Creative Commons Share Alike](https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.5/) licence._
