Nature reserve Heidiland

Gebiet Foostock und Foopass

UNESCO Spot No. 7 in the Tectonic Arena Sardona


Seldom is the Glarus thrust so beautifully open-minded and so easily recognizable as on the east and south sides of the Foostock. As a result of erosion, the Glarus thrust at the Foo Pass had already been removed, which is why Arnold Escher had the Glarus double fold foreclosed here in the middle of the 19th century. The fierce decades-long controversy surrounding the Glarus double fold led to the Foo Pass becoming a Mecca for geologists.
From the Foo Pass you have a magnificent view of the Piz Sardona, Piz Segnes and the Tschingelhörner, where the main thrust is particularly visible.
