The Route on Google Maps
As a start the canyon will be traversed, to get to the opposite site.
Which will lead us to the ruins of Wulp Castle. The castle (
) was built during the high Middle Ages. Despite this, the castle is documented only in a few found texts, and much of the castle’s history is not known.
A gentle trail will bypass some lovely forest meadows.
A short walk outside the forest …
… will bring you back to the canyon river with its impressive falls
Leaving the forest close to Zumikon…
