12. Flow with the Sihl

  • 9.1km
  • 155m

This trail is starting at Sihlbrugg and follows the river Sihl, going upstream on the left and turning back on the other side of the river. The trail starts at the parking lot on Sihbruggstrasse and changes surface throughout the trail, mainly gravel and single trails. You need to cross the Sihl river 2 times, shortly after the start and also at halfway. The upstream is almost flat while on the way back you need to climb some altitude before the end. The trail offers several treats along the way.

There are numerous streams joining the Sihl crossing the trails. The first one is a larger spring that joins the Sihl before you reach the first bridge. The stream rushes through the rocks and drops downhill before entering the Sihl. it is worth stopping for a few minutes to marvel at the beauty of this spot. The other spot worth stopping is the second crossing of the river. Where the huge rock boulders dotting the riverbed, it is a truly special view. Once you cross the bridge, you will see a tunnel, running through the hill, it is a frightening thought for most of us to enter but it is only optional. You can continue your way following the Sihl on the right-hand side of the hillside. The navigation is fairly straightforward, you only need to pay attention to staying close to the Sihl and don’t detour.

There is a shorter version turning back on the Woden bridge at Sennweid after 2.2km making it only a 4.5km long run. Find Route here
