THE DESCRIPTION
Although it is ascension day, let's ascent just moderately this hike. It takes us from Einsiedeln via a short ascent/descent to Altmatt at the Rothenturm plain and then towards Raten. The view changes as we now see the Aegerisee. We'll follow more or less the elevation lines, but still go up and down alternately. Shortly after we start the final descent, we will find ourself at Bruusweid Protected content mark) where we have a view over the Aegerisee towards the Alpine range in the south.
There could be a chance of having a barbecue here, but it is uncertain if there is any dry wood as ao Wednesday a lot of rain is forecasted. So let's keep that as an optional opportunity.
Only 7 km of gentle descent are left from here.
