Tour description

The first six kilometers of this hiking tour from the Turbenthal valley to Kyburg Castle follow an amazingly straight course.
The trail runs along the Töss River, and there is hardly any vertical drop. Pebbled river banks, footbridges and picnic sites beckon you to pause for a respit, shady high trees line the river banks. After the first knee-bend of the Töss, near Sennhof, the trail changes its character. A 150-meter change in altitude up to the imposing Kyburg Castle has to be overcome on the steep path.
