Wolfsschlucht-Weg

This tour reveals the different aspects of the Thal Nature Park. It begins with a climb through the lovely and wildly romantic Wolf Gorge and continues along the lofty heights of the second chain of the Jura mountains.
The starting point for this walking tour is 100 meters below the PostBus stop at the Wolf Gorge (the bus stops on request). The Wolf Gorge is a cantonal nature reserve and demonstrates the tremendous powers of Mother Nature. Between high and partially over-hanging rocky cliffs, the trail winds upwards through the narrow, wildly romantic gorge with its caves and erosions.

At the end of the climb, you leave the Wolf Gorge through a narrow passage. Continuing over lush Jura pastures, the trail goes via Tannmatt to Mieschegg and then to Hinter Brandberg. The view of the other side of the valley offers tantalising glimpses of one of the largest uninterrupted woodland regions of Switzerland. Dropping down to Welschenrohr, the route passes through a lynx reserve.
