I see a network of roads and trails on the hillside above the valley. I'm guessing that distance can be covered in a day. Looks pretty flat to downhill. Anyone have an opinion? I don't see anything by way of food and shelter in between so it would have to be.

hi,

I haven't done that section, but to me it looks like an easy trail, and doable in a day. Assuming you mean Eggbergen near Flüelen. It starts with a bit of a climb, then pretty flat, and a moderate climb in the last section.

Thanks for the confirmation. Looking closer in Google Earth I see there are some scattered shelters if I get caught out. If I can find them. I'm not confident GE puts things in very precise locations. I expect there will be some unsigned trails, map and compass work and coins to be flipped. Hopefully some locals to question. I passed this section lower down in hard rain first time around. Feels like I gave it short shrift. I did spend a night in Eggberg. Fell in love with the resident Yorkie. Didn't walk the surrounding hills much but it looked like Sound of Music landscape as far as I did go.
-Thanks for finding that link. I have been at this site and map area before but never isolated that trail. Looking at the map w/o the red dots I thought maybe my nose would lead me through Chinzig Chulm.
Flying shortly. Thanks again.
