A beautiful hike across Furna mountain. Miles of grazing land and marsh. It is worth to make the detour up to the 'Höhsäss' from where you can enjoy a marvellous panorama.

Footpath to the 'Güfer', on your right the view to the former 'Walser'-settlement Danusa and to the top end of the cable railway to the skiing area Danusa. This path follows the typical wooden slanting fence of the early inhabitants. From 'Güfer' you walk on the asphalt road up to 'Matten'. Looking back you have a marvellous view to the mountains 'Sulzfluh' and 'Drusenfluh'. Turn off left towards 'Höhsäss' from where you have a panoramic view to the lake 'Walensee'. Back to 'Matten'. Follow the road to alp Rona where there is a pub and a shop with agriculture products for sale. Footpath across Furna mountain with grazing land and marsh - the alpine flora is at its peak in June. You walk to the turn off to Scära (if you do not like this steep path you can take the new  Scäraroad, about 100 metres before) and go downhill in the direction of Wolfegga to the small sheds in Hinterberg.
