Dear All,

The idea would be to go for a long day hiking with significant altitude meters, as we are getting in the middle of the hiking season. The idea is to go from Attinghausen (469 meters) to Brusti (1530 meters) towards the Surenenpass (2290 meters), and from there going down to Blackenalp, Alpenrosli and Engelberg (900 meters). The distance is about 25 kilometers, 1500 meters up and 1500 meters down. Hiking time 9,5 hours (excluding lunch). The hike is a T2 (red/white/red) and although technically not difficult it might be that close to the Surenenpass there is still snow. The swiss call this hike Sportlich.

For those who like to shorten the hike with 2 hours there is a very small cable car which takes you from Attinghausen towards Brusti. These persons could walk ahead and/or wait for the group hiking up.

Unnecessary to say there are many spectacular views on the titlis, vierwalderstattersee etc.

We would take the 7.35 am train arriving 8.01 in zug, depart zug 8.05 arriving 8.48 in Altdorf and then depart at 9.03 am in Altdorf arriving at Attinghausen Seilbahn at 9.10 am


* The organizer is not responsible for any bodily injury or other accidents that might happen during the hike. By signing up on this activity, the participants agree that the organizer will not be held responsible in any way. Although the hike is not complicated, it is each individual responsibility to ensure that they can do the hike and check out the trail.

* To avoid that persons sign up and then cancel last minute, a flat fee of 10 francs will be charged for persons cancelling within 72 hours before the start of the hike (i.e. cancellations on July 28 and later).

* To bring along: hiking boots, poles, rain gear, water, snack, lunch ( I suggest we take lunch on the trails although we can have stops at the various restaurants on the trail), smile, positive attitude, sun-cream, photo camera.

* In case the weather would be bad, this hike will not take place.
