Ascent Trip Report

From Kriens it was possible to drive up to the small car park behind the hotel at Langfore. Im the summer an "oldtimer" rack railway makes the small climb and there are themed trails for children. During my visit there was extensive forestry work ongoing but the resulting mess and mud was all frozen solid and partly covered with snow. An easy hike but with few views due to the extensive forestation. Only near the start was it possible to look over to the impressive, snow-covered Pilatus.
