On the sunny side, the valley trail leads along the River Reuss and past the golf course to Hospental. Hikers will find themselves walking across magnificent flowering meadows to Zumdorf, the smallest village in Switzerland. After Realp, you will walk through the unique pasture landscape on the Furkareuss dam. In July, the flora along the trail is particularly lush.
