Just north of the city centre but inside the A1 highway, the Söllheimer Wanderweg is one of the best options for a fairly easy, scenic off-road run in Salzburg. The paved multi-use path features gorgeous views from the grassy valley to surrounding mountains and through pockets of forest. The route is up to 7.2 km one-way, with a couple of short on-road sections. Our thanks to Laurie Ellicott for suggesting this route!
The trailhead closest to Salzburg is off Samstraße. Heading east, the trail is also called Ischlerbahnweg. Even though the trail is fairly close to the main highway for much of the time, the scene is still pastoral. The east end is at Reicherting in Eugendorf, near the hotel Holznerwirt. For the return, there’s an option to use the adjacent Reicherting trail for ~1 km.
