Dear All, Suggest to do a walk from Wald to Steg We take train in zurich 7.55 am, arrival ruti 8.23 am -here we take bus at 8.30 am , arrival 8.42 am. Details on hike to steg (see further). With regards to return - there are many trains from steg back to zurich. Technical requirements: Medium difficulty Physical fitness: Medium difficulty Total altitude meters: 710 m Hiking time: 4 hrs. 20 min. Season: April to November After a relatively steep climb from Wald up onto the Bachtel, the highland trail continues for a good two hours along a vista-packed ridge before the trail drops down into the Tösstal. The observation tower on the Bachtel is the highlight of this route. Wald - Tänler Restaurant - Bachtel - Egg - Ferenwaltsberg - Restaurant Berg - Ghöchweid - Steg A trail which is steep in parts but well constructed leads from Wald up onto the Bachtel. Thereafter the wonderful upland route continues on to the Ghöchweid (pasture). The trail finally falls off fairly steeply into the Tösstal until it reaches Steg. Take the train to return to the starting point in Wald. To bring along: * good shoes (i do not know what the weather will be next week!); * raingear (although we are walking only at altitude from 600/800 meters, it might start snowing/raining etc.) * suncream; * water * food/pick-nick etc. ( in case we come across a hut we will stop there for some food, however since I do not know whether the restaurants/huts will be open, please bring your own food along, so that we are not dependent on restaurants). * smile and positive atmosphere In case the weather forecast is heavy snow and/or hard rain, this activity will be rescheduled. Kind regards

    On the swiss meteo site, the local weather forecast for tomorrow is 50-80% sunshine and temperatures from 6 to 12 degrees. So hike is going through as planned. See you tomorrow.
