This alternative route is not suitable for bad weather/thunderstorms.
The path over the Schofenpass also has an Alpine character and is partially exposed and covered by cable rope. A good head for heights and sure-footedness are necessary.
This is a popular mountain bike route. Be mindful of mountain bikers and make space if necessary.
You may be walking past a few different areas where cows graze. Although generally very docile and used to walkers, keep your distance and never turn your back on a cow that is behaving strangely or aggressive. Be particularly vigilant around cows with calves.
Always allow enough time for your hiking tour. The specified walking times only refer to actual time spent walking. Breaks for photos and a rest need to be added to the specified times.
Make sure you find out about current weather conditions and keep an eye on weather changes. Thunderstorms can gather very quickly in the Alps.
Do not leave the marked hiking trails!
