Rigi Kaltbad - First - Unterstetten - Hinder Dossen - Rigi Scheidegg.  This
trail follows the track of the old railway that traveled to Rigi Scheidegg
Kaltbad (1874 - 1931).  The hiking trail is not steep, ascending only
gradually at the end, making it ideally suited for the casual hiker. Along
the way there are many elements of the former railway to discover as the
route leads us through old railway bridges and through a tunnel.  There is
even a converted train carriage now serving as a holiday home, a
water-filling station for the steam engines.  The views of
the Alps and Schwyz Basin are breath-taking.  Rigi Scheidegg is accessible
by aerial cableway via Kräbel, back to Goldau.

More detailed information soon to come!

Minimum of participants: 5

Distance: 7,1 km

Hiking Time: 2:00 h

German: Rigi Kaltbad – First – Unterstetten – Hinder Dossen – Rigi ScheideggDieser Wanderweg liegt auf dem Trassee der ehemaligen Eisenbahn von Kaltbad nach Rigi Scheidegg (1874 bis 1931). Ausser am Schluss weist er keine Steigungen aus und ist daher auch für den Genusswanderer bestens geeignet. Unterwegs sind viele Zeugen der einstigen Bahn zu entdecken. So führt die Route über alte Eisenbahnbrücken und durch einen Tunnel. Auch ein ausgedienter Personenwagen, der heute als Ferienhaus dient, eine Wassertankstelle für die Dampfloks sowie einige Kilometer-Täfelchen sind anzutreffen. Die Aussicht auf die Alpen und auf den Schwyzer Talkessel ist grandios. Von Rigi Scheidegg geht es bequem per Luftseilbahn via Kräbel zurück nach Goldau.

      Yes that's right. Usually Zurich HB is the starting point and the beginning of the hike is the endpoint to buy the ticket in one direction and to go back it is from the endpoint of the hike to Zurich HB. I always us public transport because I don't drive a car.

    Hi Eva,
    May I ask about the starting point of the hike? I don't live in Zurich area so will need to meet up at the starting point. Not sure yet if I can join depends on the time at the starting point. Thank you.

      I think that we will be in Rigi not before 10. Timetables about one week before, when I'm sure that the meetup is realized (#participants, weather).
