Over the "Drachenried" and over the "Alpnachersee".  Passing farms and quite long in the shady forest. Unexpected panoramic views!

Turn-by-turn directions

From the bus station Ennetmoos, St. Jakob you pass the church and follow a meadow path to "Ebnet". At the "Rütli" we turn left towards the "Hinterbergwald" forest and reach the forest road, which leads us over the Alpnachersee, always slightly uphill. At the "Zingelkreuz" above the "Drachenflue" we are surprised by the impressive panorama. Below us now the "Drachenried", which got its name from the dragon that is said to have lived in a cave below the "Zingel". At the "Neumatt" we turn left and reach the edge of the "Ried", which we follow up to "Betti". From here it is not far to the Allweg monument, which commemorates the French attack of 1798. There is also a bus stop again (Ennetmoos, Allweg).
