Meetup Description: Hi everyone,

For those that didn't go anywhere for the long weekend, here is a proposal to get out to the nature and enjoy the day.

Last year around this time, we hiked from Walenstadt to Quinten where we took a boat to Weesen. This time we will do the second part, namely from Amden Lehnirank to Quinten or Au. Then we take the ship back to Weesen.

The hike is expected to be easy and relative short of around 3 hours mostly hiking down (200m). Hence great for all beginners to start hiking! Besides, this hike along the Walensee is always great.

The route is the following:
Amden/Lehnirank 666 m - Stausee 602 m - Betlisbergwald 715 m - Hinterbetlis 510 m (1.15 h) - Vorderbetlis 512 m (0.15 h) - Rinquelle 560 m (0.10 h) - Seeren 536 m (0.20 h) - Seerenwald 680 m (0.40 h) - Quinten 434 m (0.35 h) - Au (0.15 h)

For those that want to keep walking, there is always the alternative to go all the way to Walenstadt.

The train schedule will be:

Z?rich HB ab 10:12
Ziegelbr?cke an 10:57
Ziegelbr?cke, Bahnhof ab 11:04 BUS 19
Amden, Lehni an 11:16

Duration 1:04 hours

We should be catching the ship in Quinten (or Au) to Weesen at 16:20 hours (the earlier one is at 14:50). The price for the ship ride back to Weesen is CHF 10.50. As far as I know, they don't accept Halbtax or GA.

To bring along is:

- a ticket one-way to Amden Lehni and one-way ticket from Weesen.
- good hiking shoes
- food and water (at least 1 liter)
- sun / rain protection
- yourself

We will have a break on the way and depending on the ship schedule have a drink at one of the restaurants at the lake.

Please check the status of this event again after 20 hours the day before. Else, please call me at[masked] 4480.

Well..that's it. Hope to see you there!
