Uri Legend Trail
Isenthal themed trail is awarded a prize
The Urner Sagenweg receives the Post Promotional Prize 2023. This is endowed with 25,000 francs.
The Swiss Post and the Swiss Hiking Trails are awarding the Urner Sagenweg the Post Promotional Prize 2023. This emerges from a press release. The award, worth CHF 25,000, will be presented in May at a ceremony in the Hotel Urirotstock.
In the past 20 years, the municipality of Isenthal has implemented several themed trails that show and stage the topics of nature/culture, traditions or the relationship between humans and wild animals in an exciting way. “The focus is on enchanting hikers with a biodiversely beautiful landscape on paths that are often connected with the seven small cable cars,” says the statement. An important element for those responsible is the hourly bus service to Isenthal.
The Legends Trail leads from the village up to the Wanggrat and the Schartihöreli. «On the Wanggrat you can enjoy a fantastic all-round view. There will be a nice picnic area there, as well as under the Schartihöreli.” Those who have staying power then hike in the direction of Saum in Isenthal or in the direction of Bodmi to Seedorf. The easier, attractive family trail leads from the Scharti-Wang to the Gietisfluh cable car, by train to the Kleintal or on foot to the Nei at the very back of the Kleintal/Musenalp in Isenthal. The Legend Trail will be equipped with QR codes for listening to legends. The concept also includes small exhibitions and photo spots.
The NRP project is scheduled to be completed in 2023 and 2024. Last summer, 50 apprentices from two companies in eastern Switzerland spent two weeks picking and shoveling. In September 2023, 50 civil protection service providers from Zurich will be working on the hiking trails. (zf)
