Tour description

Circular walk from Liestal up to the Schartenfluh and via Gempen back down to Liestal.
The wooded hills around the main town in the Basle region, Liestal, are ideal for hiking and biking. There is a string of vantage points one after another along the main valley, and the whole area is covered with a dense network of pleasant paths and tracks. The walk up from Liestal to the Schartenfluh passes through the peaceful Röserental. From the Schartenfluh there is a magnificent view down into the Birstal and away in the distance towards France. Then, after the Solothurn village of Gempen, the route goes back down towards Liestal on the other side of the mountain. The landscape here is one of wide fields and a sea of fruit trees. At the end of the tour, it is worth making a diversion to see the beautiful Old Town of Liestal.
