7 2.5

For Blickensdorf we may choose Bus 32 (Bus 3  from Zug connects with 32 at Kreuzplatz). 
An excellent road (about 20 min), off the traffic, begins right after the underpass at the railway station. The road leads to Waldmannhalle. There we cross the river Lorze and turn to the main road. After crossing the Autobahn we pass the fountain remembering Hans Waldmann. At the crossing we turn left, in direction Steinhausen with the bus end loop.

The rather steep ascent to Banaebni begins just across the bus stop. After a short while we're atop and enjoy the look over Baar to Zug with the lake and the near and far mountains.

The subsequent ascent will bring us to Hirssattel with the summer Restaurant. Our route proceeds in direction Rossau.

At Schmalholz we are on a high plateau with the Albis mountain chain in the background. The road runs along the edge of the woods to the crossing Uerzlikon/Rossau/Steinhausen.

We choose the road to the left towards Steinhausen. Passing the forester's lodge the road runs in the rather dense forest, steadily smoothly descending.

Next target is Sebliboden with parking and Bitumen roads. Here a gravel road running along the creek leads to the pretty little lake. Don't miss the half hour roundtrip. Round the lake are fireplaces available.

From Sebliboden we choose the road  in direction Steinhausen, or rather Zimbel. The forester's lodge on the forest edge is the meeting point for runners. The road towards Zimbel runs along the forest edge. At the end of this part of the road we're at the start of the "Vita Parcours", a sport track for "every one". We follow the track for a while, but at post 13 we choose the small road towards Banaebni, Blickensdorf. Soon we arrive at a small barn. At the crossing there we choose Banaebni again. 

As an alternative there is a road by Hinter Zimbel. The distance to Baar is shorter. The road runs to Hinter Zimbel, Zimbel, over the Autobahn and finally to the railway station. 
At the end of the bridge crossing the Autobahn there is a board showing a idea-plan for building a "Metropolis Zug" for a Million plus population in the Lorze plains.

At Banaebni we're again on the road where we have started our tour. After a short ascent we're back in Blickensdorf.
