The majestic Schlossberg shows you the way as you reach the outskirts of Erstfeld and turn into the valley trail. The serpentine valley road immediately tests your mettle with a venomous climb. You pass charming hamlets and estates, which are typical of the scattered settlements you find in Uri’s mountainous regions. Wilerli at alt. 1085 m represents the highest point of this particular tour. The single trail through the Platten valley with its short technical descent via the alpine path at the Bockitobel is an MTB delight. The Bockiberg is the most impressive vantage point on the route. It offers views of the entire valley floor and of the lower Reuss valley. Hofstetten, by the vintage Hofstetten-Wilerli aerial cableway with its open cabins, is where you hit the valley floor.
The tour is waymarked no. 405 throughout.
