Adventure Water Way / Abenteuer Wasser Weg

in travelfeed •  6 months ago  (edited)

A hike through a gorge in the late autumn after a few rainy days is not really a good idea, because it is mostly wet, slippery and muddy there.

Eine Wanderung durch eine Schlucht im Spätherbst nach einigen Regentagen ist nicht wirklich eine gute Idee, weil es dann dort meistens nass, rutschig und schlammig ist.

Adventure Water Way / Abenteuer Wasser Weg
Liebenfels - Sörg, Austria

But it was still an interesting and beautiful hike, because I had the entire gorge to the Waterfall Sörg for me alone.

Aber es war trotzdem eine interessante und schöne Wanderung, weil ich die gesamte Schlucht bis zum Sörger Wasserfall für mich alleine hatte.

After the parking lot (gravel parking) in Glantschach near Liebenfels you walk a bit uphill on a forest road and within a few minutes you will get to an old mill ruins. The actual "Adventure Water Way" along the brook begins here.

Nach dem Parkplatz (Schotterparkplatz) in der Nähe von Glantschach bei Liebenfels geht man ein Stück über einen Waldweg bergauf und erreicht nach wenigen Minuten eine alte Mühlenruine. Dort beginnt dann der eigentliche Wasserweg entlang des Baches.

From then the path leads along the stream and waterfalls and soon after the suspension bridge, which is at the beginning of the path, and the "Teufelssteig" (Devils track, a steep track) you get to the first rest area.
If you do not have your own food with you, you may to walk a little further along the creek and later at a bigger waterfall you will find a sign to the "Gasthof Zechnerin".
But later you can also leave the path to the village Sörg, where there are several inns.

Von nun an geht es dem Bach und Wasserfällen entlang und schon bald nach der Hängebrücke zu Beginn des Weges und dem Teufelssteig kommt man zum ersten Rastplatz.
Wer keine eigene Verpflegung mit hat, der kann ein Stück weiter entlang des Baches gehen und findet später bei einem größeren Wasserfall ein Hinweisschild zum Gasthof "Zechnerin".
Aber auch später kann man noch zur Ortschaft Sörg abzweigen, wo es mehrere Gasthäuser gibt.

On the way up there was always a very fine fog, which then almost disappeared on the way back.

Am Hinweg herrschte immer ein ganz feiner Nebel, welcher dann auf dem Rückweg fast verschwunden gewesen ist.

The path partly leads over old mill paths along the brook Harterbach from the village Glantschach to Hart. I only hiked to the Waterfall Sörg, because this was of course my desired destination. Back I went the same way, but there are several other possibilities to get back to the parking lot to Glantschach.

Man geht zum Teil über alte Mühlensteige entlang des Harterbaches von der Ortschaft Glantschach bis nach Hart. Ich bin nur bis zum Sörger Wasserfall gegangen, weil dieser natürlich mein eigenltiches Ziel gewesen ist. Zurück bin ich denselben Weg gegangen, aber es gibt auch andere Möglichkeiten, zurück zum Parkplatz nach Glantschach zu kommen.

Along the way, there are some interesting things to explore, and info-boards provide information about special features along the way. Of course, along the way you will find enough cozy places and also some inns to rest.

Entlang des Weges gibt es einige interessante Dinge zu erkunden, und Schautafeln informieren über Besonderheiten entlang des Weges. Natürlich findet man entlang des Weges genügend gemütliche Stellen zum Rasten und kann auch in einigen Gasthäusern einkehren.

After the remains of an old mill ruin you go through the forest and then along the Harterbach again, until you finally reach the Waterfall Sörg.
After the waterfall, the path continues along the creek to the village of Hart with the Gasthof Harterwirt.

Nach den Resten einer alten Mühlenruine geht man durch den Wald und dann wieder entlang des Harterbaches, bis man schließlich zum Sörger Wasserfall gelangt.
Nach dem Wasserfall soll der Weg recht gemütlich weiter entlang des Baches bis zur Ortschaft Hart mit dem Gasthof Harterwirt als Ziel gehen.

Note:
If you only want to go to the waterfall without hiking, then the road to the village of Hart goes directly above the waterfall and there is also a small parking lot.

Hinweis:
Wenn man nur zum Wasserfall möchte, dann führt die Straße nach Hart direkt oberhalb des Wasserfalles vorbei und dort gibt es auch einen kleinen Parkplatz.

- Art in the Woods
- Waterfall close-ups

Zwei kleine Berichte über diese Wanderung habe ich bereits vor einigen Tagen gemacht:
- Kunst im Wald
- Wasserfall Nahaufnahmen

About a year ago, @melvin7 made a few posts about this "Adventure Water Way", including beautiful photos, and it took me almost a year to drive the few miles to Liebenfels and walk the path myself.
And next spring, when everything is green again and growing, then I will go there again ;)

Vor etwa einem Jahr hat @melvin7 ein paar Berichte über diesen "Abenteuer Wasser Weg" mit schönen Fotos gemacht, und ich habe fast ein Jahr gebraucht, um die paar Kilometer nach Liebenfels zu fahren und mir den Weg anzuschauen.
Und nächstes Frühjahr, wenn alles wieder grün ist und wächst, dann fahre ich wieder hin ;)


All photos were shot with the Canon EOS R and one of these lenses: Canon RF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM, Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L IS II USM, Canon EF 16-35mm 1:4L IS USM, SIGMA 105mm 1:2,8 DG MACRO HSM, SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM C

You need to stake more BEER (6 staked BEER allows you to call BEER one time per day)

That was a beautiful looking walk, and it is easy to see that, yes sturdy footwear is needed. I have walked trails in my younger days with all the tree roots across the path, and when they get wet, it is a very careful step by step walking process.

It will be nice to see the spring walk, the fall colors were amazing. This picture I love the rock out crop, like an old man watching over his falls.

The tree roots have been slippery, but I think I should also have photographed the muddy parts of the path which were even more slippery, believe me, but I didn't fall down ;) lol
Now, that I look at this photo again, I can see that old man too - cool 👍

I am also looking forward to spring, because now the forest looks somehow messy and will look much better when everything will be growing and blooming 🙂

Thank you very much for your nice comment @bashadow 🙂 ... and for the info about the "old man" 😉

Very beautiful nature walk. But it’s all very wet and slippery which can be very dangerous. Would need good shoes and walking sticks!

I don't like walking sticks, but I do have good hiking boots, and you are very right, because it has been very, very slippery. I had to walk pretty careful.
Thank you so much that you like my post @kaminchan, I wish you a nice day 🙂

What a hiking trail ........ i'm thrilled ...... i would spend all day there. ..and the photos are too good..🤗 @johannpiber 😊

Posted using Partiko Android

At this time of year it is not so beautiful there, especially not after rainy days, because all is muddy and slippery, but in Spring and Summer it is a really nice hike through the gorge and the forest.

Thank you so much, that you like the post @suzana72, I do appreciate your nice comment 🙂

!BEER

I believe it is nicer in the spring because I also walk in the woods here but it is not as beautiful as there. It just seems magical to me 🤗...@johannpiber

Posted using Partiko Android

I have not been there in Spring yet, but I'll be next year, and I agree, that in Spring it will look much better, because I have been in other gorges in Spring and they look beautiful in the fresh green growth 🙂
Thank you that you like that place so much @suzana72 - I didn't even know that it exists before melvin7 made his posts about it ... and it's just about half an hour from my home ;)

My pleasure! :)

Magnificent images, you have a real knack for capturing waterfalls. I like the gif you put together. Did you use a tripod for the gif shots?

That one part of the trail with all the roots looks like a real ankle breaker. ;)

Actually, I wanted to take just one photo, which I did, and then I thought I could make something like a timelapse or a gif and pressed the shutter button of the cable release a few more times ;) ... yes, I use a travel tripod and a cable release for most of my photos.

It was wet and muddy, and you are completely right, these roots have been quite dangerous, because they were very slippery. But even if it had been dry I would have had to watch my steps to not stumble over them ;)

Thank you so much again @oldmans 🙂


!DERANGED
!BEER

I have only done mine by hand (no tripod) with the multi-shot burst setting on for the shutter. I end up having to crop and align the shots in Lightroom. I like your way better. :)

I didn't even edit mine in Lightroom. This might be, why they are a bit different exposed I think. I just imported the photos to Photoshop and made the GIF ;)
If you shoot handheld, then you have to have a very sturdy hand, which I don't have, although I don't drink !BEER - so, I prefer a tripod most times 🙂

Howdy sir johannpiber! This is a great post even though the sun is not out. The water scenes are fabulous. How did you do that waterfall that is moving water?

Thank you so much for your kind words mý friend 🙂
I made a lot of photos one after the other and then an animated Gif with Photoshop - easy work ;)

Are you the only one who does not celebrate Thanksgiving? It is so quiet here on Steemit 😉


!BEER

I don't know about who celebrates it. Probably all Americans do. Is it quiet around here? Then you must have too many American friends!

It just seems to be somehow quiet to me, but I can't tell what I mean - maybe next week I'll say it's too busy ;) lol


!BEER

Well it is safe to assume that Americans have a life outside Steemit and are busy with family gatherings for Thanksgiving and such.

So they think family is more important than Steemit? Now I know, why the Steem price gets so low - because you are doing other things besides Steemit - that's !DERANGED ;)

!BEER

lol...it IS crazy I know. I'm not sure what is wrong with us, we need to get our priorities straight!

I think I'll have to write to your Mr. President, or I could write a Twitter post, which he would certainly read ;) lol
