Jurapark Aargau - The five kilometre "Chriesiwäg" (cherry trail) goes through the beautiful landscape of the Frick valley and provides interesting information about cherry-growing.

This circular walk passes through half-standard plantations as well as traditional, naturally managed standard orchards that provide a habitat for many different species including the common redstart and sand lizard.

The white trees are a feast for the eyes (and the camera lens) when spring arrives. During the harvest season, walkers can buy cherries straight from the producer on the wayside.
