Mt. Rigi Fellowship Hike

This is the inaugural event of the newly-formed Events Committee of IG:

Route: Kräbel to Rigi Kulm

Date: Saturday, June 4, 2016 (9:00 – 18:00)

Meeting time & place: Purchase ticket (Zurich HB – Kräbel) and meet at 9:00 a.m. at Zurich HB, in front of platform 7. Take ICN to ARTH-GOLDAU (9:09-9:46), walk 7 minutes to R train (10:10 – 10:19) to Kräbel. Arrive Kräbel at 10:19. From here, we pick up the trail.

Final meeting point: We’ll meet for lunch and fellowship time at the summit at Rigi Kulm Hotel – Restaurant at 13:30.

Cost: Round trip cost from Zurich to Kräbel is CHF32.60. There is a parking lot at Kräbel for those that have cars. Parking is CHF8 for the day. (For directions to Kräbel, see Google maps)

Alternative options: Those preferring not to hike can stay on the train which goes to Rigi Kulm, the summit…or start out from Zurich at a later time and meet the hikers at the Kulm.

Difficulty: For hikers, please note that this is a 3 hour hike to the summit. The trail is about 10 km in length, with an elevation increase of 1000 meters. It is truly a “hiking” trail, and there is no “climbing” necessary, but there are some steep sections. If you are tired at the top, you can always take the train down, instead of walking down. For those walking down, it takes about 2 hours.

Food & Drink: Highly suggest bringing a water bottle, and some trail snacks for the hikers. Also may want to bring lunch, although there are restaurant eating options at the top.

Gear: Hikers should have hiking shoes and a small back pack to carry a hat, rain gear, a warm pullover, and a change of shirt. Expect to sweat a bit on the way up, and expect the temperature at top to be 5-8 degrees colder than at bottom. Sunglasses and a hat are a good idea if the weather is warm and sunny.

ENJOY!
