Tour description

The hike starts at the Rüti railway station and continues through Tanner Tobel along the lively Jona. A side trip to the end of the path is recommended for a view of the waterfall and power plant.

The path goes to the right up to the Neuhof industrial area and through the beautiful hamlet of Fägswil to the Pilgersteg, from where it follows part of the Route of St. James and finally leads via Breitenmatt on attractive hiking paths to Hasenstrick. From Breitenmatt your destination, the Bachtel (1115 m altitude), is marked by signs. You can choose the return trip either to Girenbad, Wernetshausen, Hadlikon, Oberdürnten or to Wald, in all of which public transportation is available.
