The insider tip among the circular trails, practically on a natural surface throughout, through gentle terrain, sunny and especially beautiful in winters with little snow.
The circular trail around Haslen, which is also known as the "Ticino of Inner Rhoden", delights with its sun-drenched route through the gentle terrain and with ever-surprising views. Downhill you leave the village centre of Haslen and after just a few steps you are in the wide, open, agriculturally used area of Hinterhaslen. More or less flat, the meadow path leads past well-kept farms towards Teufen after crossing a small stream. At the edge of the forest, at the "Auen" property, do not follow the path down to the confluence of the Sitter and Rotbach (Strom bathing area), but turn right and at the next property you reach the Flurstrasse, which you follow to the main road to Teufen. Cross this and after a few metres on the pavement, the hiking trail leads upwards through a short section of forest to the farms "Klausenweid" and "Unterföschem", which geographically belong to Oberhaslen. On this section you have an enormously beautiful view of the Alpstein greeting you on the horizon. Along the edge of the forest, the meadow path now leads down to the road you crossed earlier and it is now only a few steps back to the starting point.
Tip: In the morning and evening hours, the Alpstein shines particularly beautifully in the distance.
Note: Please follow the white signposts "Rondom Hasle". The trail can be walked in both directions.
