Start downtown and head up to the fortress, go all the way through the park system you find at the top. Back down the hill you will pass the Augustienerbrau. Get to and cross the river, turn left, go a ways, and then hang a right just after crossing a footbridge. Follow signs to a pretty church called Maria Plain and amazing views of the mountains. Head back down the way you came, or be adventurous and figure out a new way back to downtown. Everything on this route is paved footpath. This is a fairly long run with some hill work. Also, if you are looking for an intense hill experience, head up the Capuzinersberg, the mini-mountain just off of Linzergasse.
