The wild-haymaking trail, with its rich variety, starts at the Eggeberge mountain station and ends after a 4 hours hike at the Overaxen mountain station. On the way one experiences nature up close and also learns interesting details about wild-haymaking. This ancient tradition is still alive in Canton Uri: in laborious manual labor the peasants cut the grass on steep slopes, the so-called “Wildi”. This way they ensure the cattle have enough feed for winter, while making an important contribution to preserve the bio-diversity in the Swiss mountain world. Visitors hear the strange hum of the wild-haymaking “zip line” (a rope used for transporting the hay). They also see the towering “Triste” (hay bales attached to a pole) and enjoy the typical scents of the freshly mowed slopes.
