Description:
From the starting point (ferry landing stage) in Wilhering we do not follow Donausteig Trail, but walk uphill towards the federal road. We follow the road towards Linz, walk past the municipal office and take a right turn after some 100 metres. We walk uphill in-between two houses and keep to the right. We climb the hill on a country lane and enjoy a nice view of Ottensheim and Wilhering. On the other side of the hill we keep to the left after a farm house and take a right turn uphill into Kürnberg Forest after a large company building. We cross the forest and turn westwards after some 3.5 kilometres. The trail leads downhill again and into the long-stretched settlement of Mühlbach. The last section before the houses is a nice narrow pass with a short theme trail. We take a right turn into Lindenweg at a guesthouse and follow the road that merges into a country lane after the last house. Through fields we head for the summit and having crossed it we get to Schönering. We take the underpass of Eferding federal road and continue straight. We take a left turn after the secondary school and keep the present direction until we leave the village at the last farm house. On a gravel-covered trail we hike past another farm (Piesmayr) and keep to the right. Now the trail leads through the cultured landscape and past a guesthouse back towards the Danube. The trail follows the road in north-eastern direction. We take a left turn towards Fall or Ottensheim power station resp. at the next crossing. From Fall we take Donausteig Trail back to Wilhering.

Directions:
Vom Startpunkt (Fähranlegestelle) in Wilhering folgen wir nicht dem Donausteig, sondern gehen hinauf in Richtung Bundesstraße. Dieser folgen wir Richtung Linz, vorbei am Gemeindeamt und biegen nach ca. 100 m rechts ab. Wir gehen zwischen zwei Wohnhäusern den Berg hinauf und halten uns links. Über einen Feldweg steigen wir den Hügel hinauf und genießen schöne Ausblicke auf Ottensheim und Wilhering. Auf der anderen Seite halten wir uns nach einem Bauernhaus links und biegen nach einem großen Firmengebäude rechts nach oben in den Kürnberger Wald ein. Diesen durchqueren wir und biegen nach etwa 3,5 km Richtung Westen ab. Der Weg führt nun wieder nach unten in die lang gezogene Siedlung Mühlbach. Das letzte Stück vor den Häusern ist ein schöner Hohlweg mit einem kleinen Naturlehrpfad. Bei einem Wirtshaus biegen wir rechts in den Lindenweg ab. Wir folgen der Straße, die nach dem letzen Haus in einen Feldweg übergeht. Durch die Felder geht es hinauf auf die Kuppe, nach deren Überquerung wir Schönering erreichen. Durch die Unterführung unter der Eferdinger Bundesstraße hindurch geht es geradeaus weiter und nach der Hauptschule links. Wir behalten die aktuelle Richtung bei, bis wir bei dem letzten Bauernhaus den Ort verlassen. Über einen geschotterten Spazierweg kommen wir an einem weiteren Bauernhof (Piesmayr) vorbei und halten uns rechts. Nun geht es durch die Kulturlandschaft vorbei an einem Wirtshaus zurück in Richtung Donau, der Weg folgt der Straße in nordöstlicher Richtung. An der nächsten Kreuzung biegen wir links ab Richtung Fall bzw. Kraftwerk Ottensheim. Von Fall aus folgen wir dem Donausteig zurück nach Wilhering.
