Hiking Highlight (Segment)
The narrow Tannegger ridge leads from Niederwis to the Tannegg castle ruins. The path along the ridge is mainly held together by roots. This makes the route extremely slippery in wet conditions and not recommended. In fine weather, however, the ridge path is a pleasure and also pleasantly shady.
Signs warn that good sure-footedness and good shoes are required.

The Tannegger Grat is a wonderful, rooty ridge path. I was absolutely thrilled with this trail. You should bring some surefootedness, as the many roots can get a bit slippery, especially when wet (corresponds to a T2 path, but is a ridge path, which will certainly not please everyone) The ridge path leads through the forest, but lets the rays of the sun through and in between also reveals small views.

Those who like roots will love this tightrope walk.
Important: As of May 27, 2018, on the ascent shortly after the hiking trail sign in Dussnang, there is a small sign that claims that the ridge trail is not accessible due to storm damage. The sign has already faded, so it has probably been hanging there for some time. The path was easy to walk on.
