“Say hello to the cows as you pass through their pasture climbing toward the Gotthard Pass.”
— Lost Justpastnowhere
This trail starts as a doubletrack but quickly becomes a singletrack. It passes through the lush valley of the Gotthardreuss Creek, which some cows are lucky enough to call home.
Thank the cows as you pass (and close any electric fences behind you) that you can avoid using the main Highway 2 for part of the ascent over the pass on the Gotthardpass Section I
. And watch out for cow patties.
Towards the end as you reach a large open octagonal shaped barn, you'll have to find a place to ford the creek.
