Naturpark Gantrisch - The Three Parks Hike, Stage 3, Oey-Gurnigel

The third day's hike begins with a cable car ride to the top of the Stockhorn. From here, a panoramic trail along the peaks of the Gantrisch range starts to the Leiterepass and then leads up to Gurnigel Wasserscheide. On the way, you pass the peaceful and wild Walalp, where you will find the habitat of a tiny animal who plays an important role in the ecological balance of the region. Learn more about it in the story «Kleine Baumeister auf der Alp» (in German) or « Le plus petit architecte des alpages » (in French).
