The hiking tour starts with a steep descent from the Rigi-Kaltbad Valley Station in the direction of Vitznau. Every so often your glance is drawn to the might rock faces which are part of the ridge of Mt. Dossen. On the valley side the view of the lake basin of Vierwaldstaettersee, or Lake Lucerne, opens up. Shortly before reaching the lake resort of Vitznau, the route turns right and runs along the slope in the direction of Weggis. Constantly going up and down, across meadows and through dense forests, you will hike in a westerly direction. The hiking route between Vitznau und Weggis, high above the lake, has become an unparalled, sought-after panoramic tour.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
The time estimate seems to be off. I walked this trail in approx. 2.5 hours at a normal pace. Further, it is almost entirely downhill, rather than "constantly going up and down".
Can this trail be open around April 15th to 20th ?
