Saturday August 27, 2022: Frick (344m) - Wasserflue (866m)

This small hike is somewhat a continuation of last week hike, this time starting in Frick and hiking toward Salhöhe and then Wasserflue - slight overcast of yesterday's rain fall. I take the train to Frick (12:00)

Some distances:

  • Frick - Laufenburg 3h 25m
  • Frick - Mettau 4h 5m
  • Frick - Koblenz 6h 55m
  • Frick - Siggenthal 6h 15m
  • Frick - Brugg 4h 45m
  • Frick - Bänkerjoch 3h
  • Frick - Staffelegg 4h 40m
  • Frick - Aarau 4h 35m (the one I take)
  • Frick - Gelterkinden 5h
  • Frick - Anwil 3h 20m

and start to walk through the small village toward Wittnau,

Some more distances:

  • Wittnau - Effingen 4h 10m
  • Wittnau - Salhöhe 2h 40m (the one I take)
  • Wittnau - Rothenfluh 2h 45m
  • Wittnau - Mumpf 4h
  • Wittnau - Stein-Säckingen 3h 10m

where I walk the hike trail #42 toward Salhöhe / Aarau, around 15:15 I reach Wasserflue, a small ridge of apprx. 800m elevation. As there is little space to pitch the tent, I descend from the ridge toward Wilenberg, where I find a bench, fireplace, and a small spot flat enough to pitch the tent for tonight (18:00). Was an easy hike, yet, I drank 3l water just on those ~5hrs hike, with mild 25°C and slightly overcast, and in the distance thunder but rain did not approach me this evening.

Sunday August 28, 2022: Wasserflue - Aarau - Boniswil

Windy night, every 20mins or so some strong gusts which woke me up - great view near the ridge, but also exposed to the winds going from and to the flat land and the ridges. 7:00 awake, at 8:00 I pack and depart, and slowly descend toward Aarau (10:00),

and further to Suhr, Gränichen, and then uphill toward Dürrenäsch, mostly through forest which is nice - the sky is still overcast but slowly opening. I decide to keep today shorter, and descend to Boniswil (14:45), where this hike ends - from there I take the train back to Zug (via Lenzburg - Rotkreuz).
