Interesting varied tour. The way up is primarily on forest paths, then you go first along the planet path from Üetliberg towards Felsenegg. But soon you leave the mainstream and come to a flowing, casual single trail until shortly before Buchenegg. From there you go back towards Üetliberg, but soon you turn right down a steep first class downhill, where you feel like you're on a bobsleigh run (attention not suitable for beginners)! When you arrive at the bottom, cross the Leimbach farm and continue on small hiking trails down to Adliswil. In Adliswil, a small staircase session leads us to the Sihl, which we follow towards Zurich. But soon it's back up to the Entilsberg and there in the forest on forest paths and single trails back towards Zurich. At the Müggenbühl restaurant you drive into Zurich on asphalt and cross towards the lake through the Rietbergpark. Warning: this is a driving ban and there are often small children. So please get off or drive carefully at walking pace!Show more
