Tour description

Mountainous route, primarily on paved roads with excellent views of the Linth valley and the nearby mountains. The highest section on the Fronalp coincides with the Schabziger Alpine Trail, a theme path illustrating a regional cheese specialty.

The tour begins in Glarus and after a 180-degree left turn the road begins to climb in the direction of Ennetberge. The section across the high plain is a bit easier on the legs. It is followed by another ascent with a short single trail and a carrying section leading to a spectacular viewpoint near the Friends of Nature hut. The route then continues on the Schabziger Alpine Trail to Mullerenberg. This theme path offers interesting facts about a local cheese specialty. In clear weather, the views range across the entire Linth plain up to the upper part of Lake Zurich. The downhill section to Mollis is an exciting fast ride. The last part of the tour from Mollis via Nestal back to Glarus follows the valley floor.

  • Bin schon viele Touren von GPS Tracks oder auf eigene Faust gefahren. Dies war aber definitiv die langweiligste. Sicher über 90% getert. Aufwärts ist dies ja noch angenehm, aber auch wieder runter?!?! Die einzige "Schwierigkeit" war das Bike die letzten Meter zu tragen. Ein Heighleight war der Ziger - Tiger im Restaurant Fronalpstock. Ein paar schöne Aussichten hatte es auch aber eben Fahrtechnisch ganz sicher keine S1.

    Comment GPS-Tracks.com: Einverstanden - wir haben die Tour auf S0 gesetzt!
