The 488‑km Trans Swiss Trail is a long-distance hiking route which takes walkers from Porrentruy to Mendrisio in 32 stages.
The fourteenth stage of the Trans Swiss Trail is a ridge walk along the west flank of the Pfyffer. Breathtaking views of Schrattenflue and Hohgant, bulwarks of the Alpine foothills, await walkers from the top of Wachthubel. A descent towards Schangnau then follows, passing by the black buffalo which have made Schangnau famous for its mozzarella.
