Through snowy forests to beautiful viewing points, the Chruteren winter hiking trail passes through snowy forests and past rustic Alpine huts. Along the way, there are beautiful views of the Schwyz Valley Basin, the Mythen and the mountainous world of the Muotathal Valley.
The viewing point is reached by the steepest funicular railway in the world - which departs right from the centre of the mountain village of Stoos. But we quite quickly leave the lively winter sports scene behind us. The winter hiking trail, which at seven kilometres is the longest on the Stoos, intersects with the cross-country ski run at some points. Snow-covered forests, sunny clearings and free stretches all give way to one another. The sunny benches at the Bawang Hut and the view from the Seilstock offer great opportunities for a break. Far below lies the Muotatal Valley and behind this, the mountains rise steeply towards the sky. Back in the village, you can relax in the unhurried atmosphere on the sun terraces of the mountain restaurants.
Leave the motorway at the Schwyz exit and follow the signs towards Stoos/Muotathal. From there, the journey continues by cablecar into the car-free mountain village of Stoos.
There is plenty of parking space at the valley station of the Schwyz-Stoos funicular.
