Grotzenbüel (1'559 m ü. M) ⇒ Kneugrat ⇒ Seblengrat

The slightly ascending path from the Grotzenbüel leads to the Kneugrat in about 55 minutes (altitude difference about 320 metres), where a wonderful view of the Bächital and the Glarus Alps awaits. From the Kneugrat, it takes about 20 minutes to hike to the almost equally high Seblengrat. Linger awhile in the “Seblen” mountain restaurant. There you will find simple but lovingly prepared dishes.

The second section of the panoramic hike leads on from the Seblengrat through the ice gallery to the Gumen. The Gumen offers a breath-taking panorama of the Tödi and Ortstock mountains.
