Consignes de sécurité

Today 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 plenty of time for your hike. The walking times indicated do not include breaks. Rest and photo breaks must be added to the times indicated.

Check the latest weather information and be on the lookout for changes in the weather. Storms can develop rapidly in the Alps and if the trail is wet it can be slippery, tread carefully. 

Do not leave the marked hiking trails.

Please note that there is no mobile phone reception in the Alperschon valley.

Conseils et recommandations supplémentaires

It may be possible to pick up some refreshments at Ansbacher or Fritz huts. Bear in mind that opening times can vary and you should carry a packed lunch and/or plenty of snacks to keep you going throughout the day.
