    Elephant stream is called the brook in the Stöckentobel-symbol for it is the stone elephant, which the beautification club Zurich 1898 further down in the riverbed built. Where the unusual name comes from is not clear. But already on the wild card from the years 1843-1851 the brook is called by the Stöckentobel as "Elephantenbach". The elephant stands in the middle of the stream and invites you to play and linger. A fire pit with seating is also available.

    Beautiful hike in Stockentobel along the creek to the restaurant Trichthausermühle. Back along the Wehrenbach. Quiet, idyllic and a lot of shade, very close to the city. Easy to reach by public transport.

    The Elefantenbach is a beautiful hiking area and here with the Elefanten there are many families especially at weekends for barbecues and in the brook with the Elefanten.
