Running between Klausen Pass and Altdorf, the Schachental Hohenweg trail travels high above the north side of the Schachental Valley in the Schwyz Alps with panoramic views of the Glarus Alps to the south and the rugged cliffs of the Schachentaler Windgallen massif towering overhead

Golzern - Hohenweg Maderanertal

Distance: 5.0 - 9.8 miles (Loop)

This is another of Switzerland’s wonderful high routes with almost nonstop views. The trail loops around the Maderanertal, a pristine valley surrounds by soaring mountains, and visits the Windgallen Hut. Waterfalls, wildflowers and small hamlets add interest to the hike.
