Hiking Highlight (Segment)
A bit after the Tobelhof near Rikon begins the wilderness of the Tobel, which has no name, even the stream is simply Tobelbach.
In the Lower Casting, we find a large pool surrounded by nails, which is filled with water through an imposing waterfall, and there is no lack of a fire pit with wooden benches.
After the pool, a steep staircase leads to a higher ground level, where shortly after the end of the stairs a narrow path leads to the so-called "bathtub". This was previously filled with less attachment, but it still invites dogs and children to swim.
A little further on is the next waterfall. But if you want to see it, you have to find it first, because it is barely visible from the path: a good 500 meters after the stairs, a trail branches off to the left, which ends at a small platform. This offers good views.
At the Bläsimühle the Tobel is over. At the forest exit there is a large fireplace with beautiful stone tables and benches as well as a playground.Those who like to wade in the water can wade well with waterproof sandals from the Bläsimühle to the Upper Giessen through the Tobelbach. Especially in high heat a really pleasant change. From Untere Giessen towards Tobelhof, this is not quite as good as it is because of a few obstacles and steps in the creek bed, but it works.Tips and information on the Tobel hike with extension option and further photos: m.landbote.ch/articles/577bc441ab5c374f31000001
