SwitzerlandMobility: Hiking

Wolf's Gorge Trail

"My favourite tour in the nature park is the hike through the Wolf's Gorge. This tour starts with the ascent through the stunning, wildly romantic Wolf's Gorge and continues over the lofty heights of the second Jura chain. Traverse the stunning meadows of the Jura via Tannmatt to Mieschegg and on to Hinter Brandberg. Time and again, you will be delighted by superb views of the other side of the valley, where one of the largest continuous forested areas in Switzerland is located."
