Hüttchopf Weg

The Hüttchopf, located on the west edge of the zoological and botanical nature preserve, offers the best view of the headwaters of the Töss and the hilly world of the Zurich Oberland.
Following a kilometer's journey on a flat tarred road, the valley forks and the hilly path begins, climbing steeply to the Oberen Schwändi, later crossing the longest skilift in Canton Zurich three times. When you get close to the «Tannen» saddle, you'll see the bare Hüttchopf. Partly in the woods and partly through meadows with birches and firs, you'll climb up to the Nordgrat.

On the way to the Alp Überzütt, but you will miss the most beautiful view in the thickly wooded headwater area of the lower and upper Töss, that of the Säntis and, to the north, Lake Constance.

From Überzütt the path traverses the east slope of the Brandegg to the Scheidegg mountain restaurant. Here the magnificent view of Lake Zurich and the Obersee, the wreath of the Alps from Säntis to the Bern Oberland, into the Jura and the Black Forest, is reason enough for a long rest stop. You'll descend across the Josenberg ridge, then across the sunny slope to the hamlet of Oh and down to the Sagenraintobel. Finally there comes a varied hike along the Schmittenbach, and thus one reaches the Wald church, crosses the village plaza and arrives at the railway station.
