The Fricktal mountain trail is 60 km long and the hike is not only easy for the experienced hiker, but also for families with children. The hike is easy because of the well-maintained trails through meadows and woodlands and the minimal differences in altitude. This mountain trail can be hiked all year round, but it is particularly beautiful in the spring, when all the cherry trees are have blossomed.
