    Description

    The long, demanding tour to Hochalp crosses through the heart of Toggenburg, and, along with attractive trails, also offers phenomenal scenery with the Säntis.

    Travel along the start of the Thur from Neu St. Johann to Krummenau, and, a few meters after leaving the village, take the asphalt track up the Wintersberg to Bendel. Continue on the asphalt track in a northwards direction, until a gravel path leads to Fuchslöchern after Alp Chellen. Now head upwards on an alpine path up to the ridge, where a short singletrail veers right towards Hemberg. The tour continues downhill on a road to the river Necker, followed by the long climb to the Hochalp. Climb above the Barenegg on an asphalt track, which changes into a gravel path at Sattel, and then soon continues upwards as a singletrail. Take this until you reach the asphalt alpine road to the Hochalp, and follow this second road to the summit. Now a technically demanding singletrail leads towards Schwägalp. The path drops slightly and then climbs gently again at Spicher. As soon as you reach the asphalt track again, veer right via the Alp Horn to Ellbogen. This is the start of a rougher track towards the Schwägalp Pass road. Follow this for a few meters towards the valley until you reach Rietbad, where an asphalt track veers left. This brings us to Alp Heimetli, where a demanding singletrail leads back to Nesslau.

    Alternatives: ride around Rietbad on the singletrail through the Schattenhalbriett
