Hinter-Ey Trail (4 km)

This trail forms a shortened combination of the Napf and Badegg trails. From Luthern Bad, the idyllic trail follows the bed of the Luthern stream to the Hof Hinter-Ey inn.

Badegg Trail (4 km)

From Luthern Bad, the trail leads into the small side valley towards the Luthern Bad pilgrims’ chapel (Wallfahrtskapelle). After a few metres, the trail leads uphill on the other side of the stream. With an ascent of just over two hundred metres, the trail alternatingly leads across open countryside and through forest to the Badegg. From here you can enjoy a beautiful view of Luthertal.

Napf Trail (8 km)

From Luthern Bad, the trail leads to the Hof Hinter-Ey inn. After some beautiful sections through woodland and via a ridge, you will reach the Alp Trachselegg, an Alpine meadow. This first beautiful outlook point is a wonderful place to rest. The trail leads onwards across the meadow and into the mountain forest towards Mount Napf. After a few loops in the steep forest, the trail emerges on the summit, where a splendid panoramic view and the Berghotel Napf await you. During the descent, the first section in particular demands careful attention to the signposted danger spots. The descent continues idyllically via Niederänzi to the Badegg and on towards Luthern Bad.
