Steinegg – Eggli – Schwarzenegg – Weissbad

Somewhat demanding in terms of fitness, this hike will please fans of meadow paths and lots of sun. With extended breaks, you can easily spend a whole day on the trail.

Leave Steinegg behind you uphill and after the Rest. Schlössli you turn off the road. From now on you hike across meadows and past the well-kept farmhouses of the Befig area up to the Eggli restaurant. You have reached the highest point of the hike, time for a panoramic break. Descend over reddish meadows and past scattered "Gädeli" to the Schwarzenegg area at the Gehr property and follow the narrow field road past the beautiful St. Martin chapel to the main road. After a few steps you leave the main road to the left and one slope later you have reached Weissbad.

Tip: Take note of your choice of footwear; if there is fresh snow, use snowshoes, and if there is a thaw, be sure to wear waterproof shoes.
waterproof shoes, because the meadows are very wet.
