The former mule track between Brig and Gondo offers an exciting hiking adventure.
The trail was built by Kaspar Stockalper in the 17th century and provided a safe commercial route across the Alps. The Ecomuseum Simplon foundation reactivated the mule track and made it the cornerstone of its open-air museum. It is listed in the network of Cultural Routes of Switzerland as ViaStockalper.
