When talking about the biking in Schwägalp, the legendary motorbike meetings are usually mentioned. Yet the fissured world of the mountains in the area of the Säntis attracts human powered steel horses as well.
The hilly landscape between Zürich's Oberland and Toggenburg is simply made for biking and hiking. Towards the north and the west, views open up far into the Swiss Mittelland. In the east, Mt. Säntis and the jagged peaks of the Churfirsten Range rise up to the sky. A dense network of trails guarantees a plethora of tour options.
Those who want to go even higher will continue along the trail to the summit of Hinterrugg. On the way, you pass an unspoilt valley, strewn with rare flowers - the Gluristal - and climb up to the highest point at 2262 m above sea level. There you are rewarded with a magnificent panoramic view from the highest of the Churfirsten peaks.
