Hiking season has begun – short escape to the Bachtel

This weekend a friend and I decided to walk up to the Bachtel. A trail we both didn’t know. What a beautiful winded little road led us up to the top. This was just the perfect destination for a short sunday afternoon trip. Around 30 minutes drive from Zurich we arrived at Hasenstrick and from there walked up the trail to Orn and further on to the Bachtel. We took a little rest on the top, surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of nature. To descend, we chose another shorter trail (actually should have chosen it to ascent… ) and after around 20 minutes got back from where we started (there is a big parking lot close to the Restaurant Hasenstrick).

Thanks from our side to the author of this page for providing us with the hiking trail hint for the trip to the Bachtel.

And a special thanks to my friend for providing me with the beautiful scenery pictures. Love them!
