The mountain bike tour on the Schöckl in the north of Graz is very nice and well marked. Only on the descent as the "WM Marathon"-marked part of the tour, you must study the details of three short sections. Inexperienced downhill bikers should there better push their bikes a few meters (red lines in the Google Map and elevation profile).

With start in Stattegg the first two kilometers you drive on the road to the inn Statteggerwirt and the bus terminus. This is ideal for warming up. Now you follow the signs for "Gipfelsturm Stattegg Schöckl" with an average of 11% you’ll bike uphill a forest road to the road Kalkleitenstraße. On a short run down between km 4.8 and 5.4 we go before the inn “Gasthaus Steinmetzwirt” from the road Kalkleitenstraße into the right to “Steingrabenstraße”. In the section “Steingraben” the ground goes back after 6.5 km from asphalt to a gravel road. The forest roads around the Schöckl are relatively rocky. Therefore, I recommend you to inflate your mountain bike tires with max. 3 bar. After a very short single track with about 150m at km 9.5 you switch again from gravel to asphalt on the road “Schöcklstraße”. At the lodge “Halterhütte” at a high of 1.400m and Stubenberghaus 1.445m, you will reach the highest point with 1.454m after 13,4 km on the mountain bike tour Schöckl by the transmitter on the mountain Schöckl. At the top you can make a break in the inn “Alpengasthof” and the restaurant in the cable car mountain station with wonderful views to Graz and the Eastern Styria. The average slope up to the mountain Schöckl is 9.2%. This mountain bike tour in the north of Graz is suitable for all mountain bikers with an appropriate condition, since there are no technical difficulties in the uphill from Stattegg to Schöckl. Those who prefer an easy downhill runs the same route back to Stattegg.

All who love difficult descents and a bit of adventure the MTB tour Schöckl continue towards the northeast. Follow therefore the signs “Alpentour”. The first short track sliding downhill for inexperienced you reach after about 600m. Turn after 16.7 km at the old toll house on the right and drive about 1 km on the old toll road (gravel road) towards Stubenberghaus. Then turn left, although this is the only place where this mountain bike tour a sign is missing. Between km 18 and 19 there are two very brief challenging singletrack - sections (see photos). From Km 19.5 to 28.8 you are going on quiet, paved roads about Hohenberg and Kalkleiten (also with "Panoramaradweg GU 3" marked) back in the municipality of Stattegg. Those who are not want technically very challenging descent bike just about 1 km on the Kalkleitenstraße. And then the same forest road down to Stattegg where we have started. Who will dares the first time the single trail downhill through the “Falschgraben” on the “WM Marathon” tour should definitely go first 100m on foot and visit the first section very well. Immediately after the entrance in the forest is a short but very steep section contain many tree roots (3rd shift distance, see red mark in the Google Map and the second to last photo). After this last difficulty you’ll roll back very relaxed to the starting point in Stattegg.
