From Pfaffenboden it's about 1 hr to Unteraegeri. Walking on along the
straight Bitumen road for a kilometer we reach a crossing: sharp to the
right the road leads to Walchwil. Proceeding to the left (sign
"Alpli/Wildspitz") we are soon
passing two other crossings. We follow the signs for
"Ochsenfeissi". At the second crossing, a fairly large place
used for parking and storing lumber we turn left and are now on a
nice forest track. After a short time we will arrive at the hamlet Ochsenfeissi
with the popular Restaurant Sonnegg which can be reached by car from
Unteraegeri. From here to Unteraegeri it's about half a 40 Minutes walk to the
bus stop at Unteraegeri.
Ascending the road behind Restaurant Vordergeissboden, you reach
"Huenggiguetsch-Saetteli" (5 min). Up there are two roads for Unteraegeri to
choose from. The road by "Boden" will descend conveniently to
Boden (some shooting ranges a ski lift and a popular Restaurant) and then
to the village center (40 plus 20 min).

Ascending the road at Vordergeissboden we reach "Huenggiguetsch-Saetteli".
The Bitumen road, here making a left turn, will lead to Brunegg, Schmittli. The road will leave
the forest after about 30 minutes at Brunegg.
Soon after the Restaurant,
at the fountain we choose the track to the left, for Allenwinden,
Wildenburg, Baar. There are pretty views over the wooded valleys and over
to the Gubel. There are remainders of the former glacier in this area.
In Allenwinden we may catch a bus back to Zug.
Walking for about 300 m along the main road towards Baar, on the right we
find the track for Wildenburg, Tobelbruecke. The walk is along the gorge
of a little river.
Near Wildenburg we cross and after a short while we're at the bus stop
Here again, we may proceed either to Hoellgrotten, (deep below) or to Baar
on excellent walking tracks in and along the forest.
6 km, 1.5 hrs.
Leaving the Zugerberg Station,
turning left we pass Restaurant Vordergeissboden and ascend on the Bitumen
road to Huenggi Guetsch Saetteli. We stay on that road for a short while.
After the bend and some 200m a marked track to the right zigzags down to
Sandblatten, there leaving the woods.
at the Huenggi, the terrain is
gently sloping down to Unteraegeri, presenting lovely vistas.
Some way down, after the big
slope around the Hubertus Chalet, a long wall,
actually a trench inside two concrete walls, catches the eye. During WWII
the 600m long Tank trap was part of the “Reduit” fortification. See
At the crossroads we turn left,
towards Brunegg. After some 500m the road makes a sharp bend to the right,
but we proceed straight ahead.
The trail now runs along the edge of the
forest, along the fringe of Zigermoos, and later we’re in the woods for another 500m. Leaving the trees,
the view opens and the Albis-chain is front. To the right the little
church from Gubel is visible.
Near Brunegg (summer Restaurant,
some 150m to the left) we cross the Bitumen road and on a dirt track by way of
Unterstock we reach Zugerbergstrasse.
After some 100m on that Bitumen
road, on the left a path along Schwarzenbach creek is leading down to the
main road Baar-Allenwinden.
A Bus stop is at Restaurant
Loewen, some 200m down the main road.
5 km, 1.3 hrs
After Sibrisboden at the crossroads we follow
the Bitumen road to the right for Raemselbrueggli. After some 600m a field
track to the left guides us to the bridge over Raemsel creek. Here we have
several options to proceed to Unteraegeri.
We turn left and follow the excellent Wanderweg
along Raemselbach to the main road Zug-Aegeri.
The nearest Bus stop is at Restaurant Roessli.

From the funicular station the track runs towards Felsenegg Ewegstafel.
After hitting the Bitumen road and a short walk in the forest we are
passing a plain and soon reach Ober Horbach. We proceed and pass many farm
houses and fields, very often we can enjoy superb views over Zugersee.
For Stafel the road gets a bit steeper, but soon enough we're at the
crossroads Alpli/Wildspitz and Buschenchappeli. Going to the left we're in
about 15 Minutes at Pfaffenboden. Buschenchappeli we'll pass soon while on
the way back by Fiselstuden, Raebrueti, Huenggiguetsch, Vordergeissboden.

The quickest way to reach the children's playground
"Schattwaeldli" from the station is by using the hiking
track in the general direction "Buschenchappeli".
Or from the parking at Vordergeissboden walk on along the Bitumen road.
Each way takes about 15 minutes.
If you're more interested in walking, you ascend the road behind
Restaurant Vordergeissboden up to Huenggiguetsch Saetteli.
There turn right to Raebrueti.
Later instead of turning right and down to the playground go straight on
for a while. Later you cross over to Ewegstafel and on to the funicular
