*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Stoos - Fronalpstock
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Schlattli Cable Car Station

A very pleasant, fairly easy going hike from Stoos up to the Fronalpstock, SZ (1950m). Most of this well marked trail is along the ridge connecting the peaks giving spectacular views across Lake Luzern and over the nearby Uri Alps. There's a restaurant at Fronalpstock and then you have a choice of taking the chairlift back down to Stoos, or a leisurely descent by foot.

Our meeting point is the Schlattli cable car station just southeast of the town of Schwyz. Wear appropriate footwear and bring some rain protective clothing just in case the weather turns inclement.

This is really a beautiful route, one that you need to have ticked off from the "things to do in Switzerland".

Re: Hiking in Kanton Schwyz - Fronalpstock, SZ

Thanks for organising another day in the great outdoors of CH.

This is indeed one of the all time favourite hikes with a fantastic view. I can only encourage folks to show up and see for themselves.

See you Sunday in Schlattli.

This narrowly wins over having lunch with my mother-in-law which was the other option for Sunday.

I'm tempted but it's quite a ride from here.

Enjoy and good luck with the weather.
