Sehr schöner Kurs, ziemlich exponiert. Es geht durch Weiden und Wälder, sobald Sie ankommen, haben Sie einen herrlichen Blick auf die Alpen. Denken Sie daran, Wasser zu nehmen, da die Fahrt im Sommer sehr anstrengend sein kann und es kein Wasser gibt.

Exposed trail for most of the way. I took Gandola for the last stretch to complete because of dehydration on a very hot and humid day as well as time constraints. The hike has breathtaking views. The estimated time for the entire hike is about 5 hrs, but weather conditions can affect the total time taken. From Kriens to Frakmuntegg is a cable car that takes you more than half-way and then transfer to Gandola for the remainder of the journey. Since the hike is steep from Frakmuntegg, it is the difficult part of the hike. The advantage on this hiking route is that one can do the whole hike or the two halves depending on conditions and fitness level. Last Gandola leaving Pilatus is 5:30 pm during summer months. Hence it must be taken into account in the planning of this hike unless one intends to hike up and down.

First to Review

We took this route on a recommendation from hotel and agent at information station. It climbs mostly through the woods. Past the gondola station 2/3 up the trail descends through farmers pastures and then climbs again. The views along here what few there are - mostly to northest and south, no views of Lake Lucerne! I was disappointed in this recommendation! If you want beautiful views of the lake and alps take the route that begins in Alpnach!! We came down that way - absolutely no question which is the best approach! I cannot fathom why any local would recommend the other route !?!? Also would NOT consider this hard- tedious at times, but not hard
