The Trail

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 ( Wikipedia) 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…

… to get a fantastic view of the Alps
