Equipped with good footwear, the trail begins at the cross at the edge of the forest and leads through the church forest. Climb the Chatzenstrick light-footed like a cat! Less courageous hold on to the fixed ropes. To get from the Zinglen to the Hinter Oberberg, ropes and ladders are mounted at exposed points weiderum. This section was once the shortest connection from Hinter Oberberg to Muotathal and young boys used this path to walk "z'Dorf". When you arrive at the Tritt sign, it is worth waiting for the picnic and going down the short stretch to the Trittchänzeli. A comfortable bench and an undreamt-of view of the Muotatal mountains invite you to linger there. From here the marked path leads to the idyllically situated mountain village of Illgau. Chamois often graze in the Bergli. Above the village centre, a signpost on the road points in the direction of Muotathal. The "old church path", which was restored a few years ago by retired hikers, leads steeply downhill through a wildly romantic forest past a waterfall. At Vita Parcours in the Tristel, a generously laid out fireplace awaits you on the banks of the Muota. Via the Vita Parcours you can reach the starting point Wil in a short time.
