Leuk station - Hexenplatz - Pletschen - Bhutan Bridge - Obere Abschlacht - Leuk station
This short hike starts at the Leuk station (625m) and passes the old well before reaching the Hexenplatz. The forest trail follows the Illgraben - an impressive trench where the water continually wears out deep grooves. At the highest point of the trail at 855 metres, the 134-metre long Bhutan Bridge crosses the Illgraben. The hanging walkway that connects the Lower and Upper Valais symbolises the bridging of a cultural divide. The return trip passes through the Pfyn Forest in the direction of Obere Abschlacht and back to Leuk station.
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.
