Trift Bridge Hike


The Trift aerial cable car takes you up across the Trift gorge and up to the Trift valley. From here you can hike up to the Trift suspension bridge where a fascinating view up to the lake and glacier will reward your efforts. The Windegg hut can be reached either along the direct path „Ketteliweg“ (Level T3) or the easier „Familienweg“ (Level T2). Surefootedness is required for the direct descent from the Windegg hut. An alpine route (Level T5) leads from the Trift bridge to the SAC Trift hut which takes 3 hours.
