Description

Peter's Long Trail combines the best nature experiences on the Wangser side of the Pizol in one trail. On the one hand, it leads to the Garmil lookout mountain, from where there are panoramic views of the valley, in the direction of Rätikon and in the direction of Walensee with Churfirsten. In addition, you pass the well-known 5-lakes hike in the opposite direction. On the way, mountain lakes with different colors beckon.

From the Pizolhütte at over 2,200 m above sea level.M. it then goes back in the direction of Furt and with the gondola back into the valley. Before that, however, you should take the opportunity to let your eyes wander. On beautiful days, far-reaching views to Lake Constance are possible.

Geheimtipp

At Pizol, trail running workshops take place on various dates. Accompanied by certified running guides and professional athletes.

Sicherheitshinweis

Ausrüstung

Normal trailunning equipment (trail shoes recommended everywhere). Take enough food and drink with you (self-catering principle). Maps and natel with good reception.

Directions

With the gondola lift we drive from Wangs to Furt. There we walk towards Wasserwald and then follow the Zick-Zack Trail to Fürggli. The further way to Garmil leads over an alpine meadow. Arrived on the Garmil we enjoy the great view before we go on a varied mountain path to the old Alp Gaffia. Here we enter the 5-lake hike in the opposite direction. A challenging, varied and well-known tour leads us past an impressive Steinmandlifeld, past the Baschalvasee, Schwarzsee, Schottensee and Wildsee to the intermediate destination Wildseeluggen at 2'493 m above sea level. The view of the Pizol Glacier and the surrounding mountains compensates for the great hardships. We reach the last of the five lakes by walking downhill towards Pizolhütte after the Wildseeluggen. Shortly after the Pizolhütte, the Wangsersee awaits on the right side. Now our route leads us further downhill towards the ford. On forest and hiking trails we walk past the Alp Gaffia, which we have already crossed once during the ascent and then back to the starting point Furt. To avoid the long descent, the chairlift can also be used. From Furt we take the gondola lift to Wangs.
