Ascent Trip ReportIt was a beautiful day to explore Lucerne and Pilatus was obviously on the top of our list. We got to Kriens pretty early and decided to take the gondola to the next stop, Krienseregg. From there on, we hiked while taking our time taking pictures and exploring the landscape. It was a pretty easy hike with no technical skills needed. Also we saw a quite a few mountain goats near the top.
