The route from the Erlenbach railway station and that from the boat station meet on the Wallenthalstrasse. The hiking path toward Pfluegstein soon branches off. The hike continues up through the Erlenbach Tobel to Höhschutzfall. The path, well cared for by the local tourist office, takes us through a mostly natural area beside a brook. While the path to Kittenmüli continues straight on, we keep to the left. A short detour takes one to the shooting practice site (take the Forchstrasse during shooting practice) and the marked Küsnacht-Egg path to the Tüfi, point 663. An attractive sandstone fountain at the Holzkorporation Erlenbach’s forest house was erected in the jubilee year 1991. Passing through the sunny Ruchweid area, one arrives at Hohrüti and the clearing in Chüelenmorgen, where several hiking paths meet. Continuing on toward Egg, take the path through the meadows. To the left is the Waldhof restaurant. The view opens out near the houses in Vorder Guldenen, and here is the start of the descent through the Hinteregger Berg. Coming out of the woods, the village of Egg, parts of the Greifensee and the county seat, Uster, lie before us. The Catholic Church in Egg is worth a visit, with its relic of St. Anthony of Padua. And then it is just a few minutes to the Forchbahn railway station.
Alternative A: Starting point is the boat-dock.
Attention: take a detour around the shooting practice site when it is in use!
