Mülitobel-Sihl-Weg

This hike could easily be called the «Water walk». It starts at Lake Zürich, passes through two of the year round water-bearing gorges and takes hikers past three ponds and a bathing lake.
Richterswil impresses with its picturesque and ancient village containing well-preserved half-timbered houses. The Hüttnersee is an idyllic lake set in the landscape of Moränenhügell. The depression into which it is set was formed at the end of the last ice age by one side of the Linth glacier. The lake is also popular for swimming, other short stays and its small public beach.

On this hike we pass through Hütten, the smallest municipality in the district of Horgen. A completed different world greets you along the Sihluferweg trail. The pre-Alpine waters of the River Sihl wind towards Zürich, swerving past large rocky mounds, creating a gorge-like environment whilst providing hikers with an easy route to the Finsterseebrücke bridge. The last small waterway on this hike is Teufenbachweiher, a reservoir. This serves the oldest power plant in the Canton of Zürich, the EW Waldhalde an der Sihl, by means of a pressure pipe.
