Perfect to experience all terrain. Every part of the hike has great views. The walk down to Hergiswill starts very rocky then goes through the forest, and ends near some beautiful farms.

I loved this trail. A lot of the mountain trails go along steep drop offs. This one didn't, The closest that I felt to uncomfortable was the last bit from the restaurant to the to of Esel. The wonderful views along the way made for a fantastic day. I can get used to having a cold beer waiting at a restaurant at the top of the journey. Will do it again the next chance that I have!

Spectacular trail, but we thought it was tougher than “moderate.” 4 stars only because of the steeper sections that were gravel/small rocks (pretty slippery and slow going for the last mile prior to the top) and it was still a buggy in late September. Views are amazing from the start (lake, valley, huge peaks in the distance, interesting rock formations) and loved the cows on the trail (a bit scary but fine to just go past them). We hiked up from the base train station, took ~3 hours up for two moderately experienced hikers, hung out at the top, then hiked 2 miles down to a tram station to ride the rest of the way to save our legs ($25 each).

Absolutely amazing hike. The views at the top are truly magical. A sea of clouds with the alps on the other side.

Wonderful! The sound of the cow bells, the breeze, the flowers, the beer on top of the mountain! Dreamy! Do it!

This was incredibly beautiful!! It was certainly a challenge and took a long time so bring water and food. Also be prepared for interrupting grazing cows. The way down is a little tough in some areas because of the loose rocks so watch your foot or you’ll find yourself sitting and sliding!

First to Review

The trail is uphill the entire way, it’s got beautiful views though. We hiked up to the top and took the cogwheel train back down. I’d recommend this for experienced hikers.
