    The approximately seven kilometers of wilderness trail leads you from the mountain station Eggberge to the mountain station Oberaxen above Lake Uri. On the way, you will hike through light pine forests, past gloriously blooming wildflowers and across steep meadows, which are still mown by hand today. The farmers in Uri keep the old hay culture and tradition alive by laboriously working with scythes on the steep slopes, the so-called "Wildi" mow. On the one hand, they have enough food for their animals in winter, and on the other, farmers make an important contribution to the preservation of biodiversity in the Swiss mountains.Between Eggeberge and Oberaxen you will learn about this ancient tradition on various information boards and, with a bit of luck, you can even watch live as the farmers take action. In addition, you can enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the blue Lake Urnersee in the valley and the impressive mountains in the background. To round off the hike, you have both at the starting point and at the destination of the hike opportunities to stop off comfortably.
