Anyone up for hiking around Zugerberg?

Apparently its nothing serious but if the weather is good it is supposed to have good views over Zugersee.

If anyone is interested let me know. I've never been there but it is better than just hanging out the the ever exciting Zug.

Re: Anyone up for hiking around Zugerberg?

Been there, done that. Popular place. We went once on a sunny, beautiful day but I think it was a Monday and/or between the seasons as all the restaurants were closed. Once it was foggy, we saw little. Fun just the same though. Been there in winter too when the lowlands were foggy and as there were lots of people with the same idea of seeking the sun, the snow on the paths was hard-tramped and very icy in patches. Yeti Krallen for the boots were helpful. (Dosenbach and Migros both have them).

Pleasant walk though. Probably not much snow now. If the weather is good, don't be tempted to go to the bottom of the railway by car unless you like wasting your time going round in circles looking for a parking place.

Enjoy yourself. Hope you find kindred spirits to meet up with.

In the US Northeast, where icy trails are a fact of winter life, most hikers now use Kahtoola MicroSpikes. They look quite a bit more aggressive than the Yeti Krallen that Longbyt recommends, maybe overkill for the Zugerberg.

No idea where they can be found in Switzerland, but at least of EFer uses them

But those Efers cheated and bought them abroad. I wanted some but the firm I found mentioned in the ad (in the Romandie somewhere) didn't reply to me and then the snow began to melt and I stopped worrying about it for the time being.
