Schwägalp (AR) - varied high-altitude trail
The hike goes from the Schwägalp to Chammhaldenhütte and Blattendürren to Urnäsch.
This hike leads from Schwägalp down to Urnäsch. You hike along alpine trails past various alps, cross forests on narrow, winding paths and are surprised by overwhelming views from the long mountain ranges. The Säntis with its rugged rocks and steep faces is omnipresent. Most hikers turn off at Langälpli up to Kronberg and from there take the cable car down to Jakobsbad station. Towards Spitzli the route continues along a ridge. But before you reach Urnäsch, a steep descent awaits you from the Spitzli down to Grossdürren. A little less steep, the route then follows the sunny slopes to Urnäsch. Before you leave for home, it is worth taking a walk through the pretty village centre.
