Tour description

Many mountains will never become well known. The Stockberg, located at the entrance to the Wägital, is one of these. Its shape, reminiscent of a somewhat too flat camel’s hump, is not impressive, and its neighbors are higher and better known. Another reason why only a few people climb this mountain: one cannot get very close to it by car or public transport. It’s much easier to get to the Bachtel, Etzel, Schnebelhorn & co.
From the railway station one walks through the village of Siebnen. After passing the hydroelectric power plant, which transforms falling water from the Wägital into electricity, you’ll start to climb. Later you will find yourself on a little road that you follow up to the Schwändelen. Your reward here will be the wonderful outlooks that this location offers. Between richly blooming meadows and a steel blue sky you’ll see the whole group of prominent Wägital peaks. Chöpfenberg, Tierberg, Bockmattli, Zin-dlenspitz, Mutteristock and Fluebrig are still crowned with spring snow. Above Schwändeli one trav-erses a wood on a picturesque, little-known trail before one reaches the summit with its terrific view. Your map can tell you what awaits you now: after a steep meadow comes a gently descending gravel path to Tostel. At the end it will get really steep. The pass snakes at times down stairs and blocks of stone through the Schübelbacher Bann.
