Late Morning Hike on Pfannenstiel Forch - Meilen

  • This location is shown only to members


For all those late-morning-Sunday-risers, this is the perfect hike for you! Hiking time is roughly 3 hours, 150 meters up, 450 meters down.

We will hike from the Forch towards Pfannenstiel for wonderful views of the Lake Zurich and the mountain panorama in the background. We will then take the route down the Meilener Tobel where we will be graced by a beautiful waterfall and head on down to Meilen where we shall take the train back to Zurich.

Meeting Point: We will meet at the Stadelhofen Station by the Forchbahn (the red trains departing there) Im almost 2 meters tall, so you can't miss me!

Meeting Time: at 9.40. Please have your ticket to the station "Forch" available as the train departs at 9.50.

Take along: good hiking boots, plenty of water, picnik, sunscreen and warm, layered clothing, including a rain jacket just in case, although the weather should be good.

I look forward to a great outing in the splendor of springtime!

    For those who saw the long-tailed black insect we could not identify: it seems to have been a female European Glowworm (Lampyris noctiluca).

    This event was very well organized - thanks Manuel! The path was easy to follow and the group mostly stayed together despite the size; the organizer took care that everybody could follow. The little bits of information provided by the organizer along the track were interesting and added to the experience. Perfect for a start in the hiking season!

    you change at Zürich HB, trains to Stadelhofen (S-Bahns, every train leaving from underground platforms 43 & 44 stops at Stadelhofen) leave every 3-5 min, there are also many trams, walking would be 10 minutes.

    Manuel, if I come from Bern, do you know how I could get to "S-Bahnhof Stadelhofen" (is this the same place as you said?) from the Zurich train station? Thank you.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
