Tour description

Starting at the Oberricken parking lot, one climbs for 5 minutes up the road toward Ricken, arriving at the «Bodenwis« and continuing on the paved road in the direction of Hinter Laad and Heid. The road to Hint. Laad is paved, and then a gravel road runs to the little hamlet of Heid (1008m). After passing this farm, one climbs up to Laad (913m), where one makes a 180-degree turn. From now on it is uphill in the Chrüzegg direction via Höch-Laad – Eggli – Hint. Eggli – Unt. Tweralp – Ob. Tweralp. 15 minutes more to the Chrüzegg lookout. At first one descends a bit, passing the Gr. Rotstein, the Hint. Rotstein and the Vord. Rotstein. Now the path gets steeper and one hikes up over the Hüttenberg to the starting point in Oberricken.


Alternative A: starting point Ricken (may be reached by public transport) to Bodenwis (approx. 20 min. on foot)
