The Schattdorf mountains are the classic biker territory of the Urners. This magnificent tour in the region William Tell can hardly be surpassed as regards variety. In the Middle Ages, WIlliam Tell lived in Bürglen. He inspired the independence movement in the "Urschweiz", i.e., the original cantons of Switzerland.
On the second part of the Swiss Path you are constantly accompanied by spectacular views of Lake Uri and Central Switzerland’s Alps. The hiking trail runs at times close to the lake, at times high up above the gigantic rock faces of the axis road. Like in the first part, the route passes many historic sites of the early Swiss Confederation.
High above the Schächen Valley, between 1500 and 2000 m a.s.l., there is a fantastic mountain trail from Eggbergen via Rietlig up to the Klausen Pass. Grandiose vistas of the Urner Alps, the Reuss and Schächen valleys accompany you on the entire tour. Deep below, the historic Pass Road wends its way up to the Klausen Pass.
