Details

Description

From Walenstadt train station in the direction of Hotel Seehof, a tarred road leads along the right bank of the lake. After the playground, an ascending gravel path begins on the right-hand side through the forest to Garadur (Walenstadtberg). This route can also be taken by post bus from Walenstadt to the "Alte Post" station. This shortens the hike by about 1 hour 15 minutes. The single-track hiking trail continues through the forest in a zigzag course back to the lake. Once this is reached, a beautiful hike follows along the lake to the car-free hamlet of Quinten. It has an almost Mediterranean climate, which allows exotic fruits such as kiwis and figs to thrive. From there you take a leisurely boat trip to the other side of the lake to Murg and then take the train back to Walenstadt.

Geheimtipp

During the summer season, the way back from Quinten to Walenstadt can also be made directly by boat if the tour is planned accordingly.

Sicherheitshinweis

When descending in the Josenwald from the Garadur to the Josenhab, it can have slippery sections due to the weather.

Ausrüstung

Sturdy footwear is recommended. On warm summer days it can get very warm, as the path runs partly close to the rock. Sun protection and enough fluids on the go are a must.
