Leisurely hikes with views of Schwyz, the lakes and the mountains. With changing views, ascents and descents, past monasteries and chapels, manor houses and farms.

First walk along the pilgrims' path towards Dorfbach SZ, then continue towards Tschütschi. On the way, you will pass the Klösterli St. Josef. You then walk all the way downhill towards Rickebach SZ. You will enjoy a beautiful view of the Schwyz valley basin. However, a little above the Rotenfluebahn, a path leads you towards Stalden. You then turn into the main road and walk towards Rickenbach SZ. Then walk in the direction of Perfiden and follow the path. You are surrounded by many green meadows and may see one or two paragliders landing. In between, a narrow meadow path then goes down to the Grundstrasse. A little below, the path continues across the meadow where the Pragelpass path passes through. After that, just keep walking until you reach the main square in Schwyz again.
