The trail goes through small villages, more urban than nature (didn't take so many photos of the urban part) like Sissach, and entering Homburgertal with Ruemlingen, Laeufelfingen, and eventually reached the Hauenstein 690m.

Thursday 2023/05/04: Hauenstein - Sursee

Good night sleep, leaving 8:30 and descending Trimbach and then Olten, along the Aare river and reaching Aarburg, and from there navigating through urban Oftringen and Zofingen, where one of the busiest highway are routed through. I knew this could become a challenging day, as I wasn't sure how far I would hike and the day was sunny and getting warm to 23C eventually, more in the direct sun. Eventually I ended up reaching Dagmarsellen, quite tired already but I knew I would have to ascend to Santeberg with its forest to find a good place to pitch the tent, so I ended up another 1hr until I found a good place.

Friday 2023/05/04: Sursee - Sempach

Good night sleep, very silent through the night - and in the morning being woken up by bird songs - so I continued 8:30 to Sursee (no photos) and then along the Sempacher See / Lake and eventually reached Sempacher Station, where this hike ended 15:00.

The pre-alp region with soft hills are nice to hike in spring time, while the higher regions of the alps still are covered by snow, and some of the passes like St. Gotthard still closed.

That's it.
