Let's do a nice hike to see the colours of the fall, before all the leaves are on the ground.

THE DESCRIPTION
This hike will take us to the mostly rolling hills of the Jura. We will pass a lot of forest and some meadows which offer a view. Also Geissflue should give us a nice lookout. We will have lunch at Naturfreundehaus Schafmatt, they have simple dishes like soup, sausage or cheese with bread. It will also give us the opportunity to warm up a bit.
