This is a varied trail exploring Sijentalwald and the lakeside, connected with the lush green meadows.
The trail can be started at Buonas or at Sijentalwald.
We explore the trail here starting from Sijentalwald.
The run starts with a short uphill on a wide gravel road inside Sijentalwald alongside a small stream.
This forest is a hidden gem and most of us would not consider it.
It is a calm place that is rich with wildlife. Follow the Vitaprcours and the hiking path to cross the motorway and carry on towards the lake.
After crossing the railways it is a steady downhill towards the sea through the streets of Buonas. Once at the lakeside follow the shore on the right.
The view span across the horizon from Cham to Oberwill and the Zugerberg in the background.
At the end of the road turn right and climb back to the main road, go through the farm and carry on towards the hill past the pastures.
The cows dominate the landscape here and their bells fill the air.
As you near the top alongside the forest the view opens up again towards the lake again.
By the gate turn up and continue uphill on the grassy path once reach the cross carry on uphill here the scene changes again and you are surrounded by the pine forest.
The trail turns narrow and a bit technical before reaching the forest road. Out of the forest, the Alps reveal themselves on the left.
Continue on the hiking path through the pastures and you are shortly back to the forest to explore the other side following the parkour before reaching the starting point.
