From the village part Wyl you follow the hiking trail on the south bank of the Muota. Passing the historic monastery of St. Josef, the path leads you to the "Gampälistäg", which brings you to the other side of the Muota. You stay on this bank of the Muota and then follow the road towards Stalden / Pragel. Shortly before the bridge over the wild Teufbach you leave the pavement and follow the gravel road uphill. A bench at the edge of the forest invites you to linger a while before you follow the tarred road slowly back towards the village. The southern slope is not called sunnyside for nothing and is often used as a walking path. From the hamlet of Hoftrog with its well-kept Schwyz farmhouses, the path leads along the road back to Wyl. Don't forget to take a look at the culturally valuable baroque church of St. Sigismund before you relax with cake and coffee.
