Ascent Trip Report

One of several hills climbed on a tour of Zurich canton's minor tops. It is actually possible to drive past the farm of Egghof almost to the Waldhütte Schöfflisdorf but the remaining walk is hardly worth doing so I parked a little lower on the edge of the village and walked up instead. The high point is in open ground near the forest road Alte Plattenstrasse.
