Description

We cross the village Stoos on the way to Wannentritt - Muotathal. At the last houses choose like the turn-off direction "Holibrig" to gain height for the first time and to let the view wander into the distance. During the first part of the hike, the Mythen dominate the panorama. After the Alp Metzg the signpost "Rinderchruteren" leads us down to the Chruterenwald. Here the forest is a striking contrast to the gentle alpine pastures. As a result of the soil, which is strongly interspersed with karst rocks, the forest has been preserved because it was not suitable for clearing alpine pastures.At Alp Bärhalten, a look back offers a magnificent panorama over the Stoos Alps and forwards into the Muota Valley. The trail continues over the Füdlen Alps and the Laubgarten to the Wannentritt, again and again with changing views. From the Wannentritt we can see the impressive Chaiserstock chain. The soft terrain of the Stoos Alps is replaced by the rugged limestone cliffs.Down into the valley we choose the path north around the Schwarzstock. Through the shady forest we reach the Höch Weidli, a natural balcony overlooking the Muota valley. Shortly below we experience for the first time the different topography of the terrain while crossing a rock band. Before the construction of the alpine and forest roads, these used to be the connecting roads between alpine settlements and the village. At Frutt we decide again for an old connecting path between the settlements and choose the hiking route over the Wissenwand to the lower Flüelen in the valley. The impressive path through the Feldbänder from the Unter Wissenwand used to be the school route of the Wissenwand Kinder!
