Tour description

From the Forch Station one takes the hiking path through the little rural village of Chaltenstein toward the Pfannenstiel. On the edge of the woods the view opens up toward the Üetliberg and the Albis, the Greifensee, the Oberland, the Säntis and the Speer. One then climbs up the steep Gubelweg and takes the forest trail parallel to the road, through meadows to the farms of Vorder Guldenen. At the Guldener Höch, a pretty forest clearing, the hike continues in the Pfannenstiel Hochwacht direction. From Hochwacht one follows the sign to Toggwil, and then downhill into the valley. Where theJakob-Ess-Weg branches off to the left, one stays to the right and passes through the Rappentobel nature preserve to the little village of Toggwil. The Meilen «Dorfbachtobelweg» starts here – a trail through the wooded gully, shady and varied, following the babbling brook and passing by many glacial boulders. One winds around fallen trees and leaves the woods, arriving in a few minutes at the endpoint of this hike. The return trip may be made from the train station or the Meilen boat dock.
