Tour description

Starting point for this hike is either the Stäfa railway station or boat dock (Alternative A). The Kronenweg takes us up to the Grundhalden part of the village, where the trail soon branches off to the Risitobel. A quick climb up the stars to the Risi rewards us with a good view of lake and mountains, and benches and an outdoor fireplace tempt us to stay a while. Somewhat later, the trail to «Lützelsee» reaches the high trail from the Pfannenstiel over the Mülihölzli to Rapperswil. From the Buechstutz section the Stuckiweg runs along the edge of the woods. Through the trees we catch a glimpse of the little Seeweidsee. Our next goal is the Lutikon pond with its Egli-Haus, worth seeing. Next is the Lützelsee with its beach, popular on warm days. After a side trip up to the Bochslenhöchi with its signs identifying the Alps and a view of Rapperswil, Lake Zurich and the mountains, we approach the hamlet of Lützelsee. The signpost «Grüningen» takes us on the path round the pond to Hasel pond, where a resettling of white storks provides an attraction for young and old. The path continues to Adletshusen and via Hof Reipen to Itzikon. Finally it is a short stretch along the idylic Töbeliweiher to the little town of Grüningen, where a bit of sightseeing is well worthwhile.


Variants
