This is a short but interesting hike full of local legends that date back to medieval times. The legend has it that runners from the two villages Altdorf and Glarus met up at the stone marker to determine who should own a certain part of the area. The hike connects the Klausen Pass to the Uri Plain. The impressive Toedi Range and Mt. Clariden are the focal points at most times.
