To gallows and to Mühlebach

Hiking trail

This short walk takes you from the old part of the village of Ernen, past giant maple trees towards the "gallows", up to the ridge of the hill, Moosjihügel, and further on to Mühlebach.

This short walk takes you from the old part of the village of Ernen, past giant maple trees, towards the "gallows", and up to the ridge of the hill, Moosjihügel. Then you cross the idyllic small spruce forest before you reach the "Chännle", or impressively constructed wooden water channel for the irrigation of the meadows. You can either walk back to Ernen across the meadows or take the PostBus.
