A small singletrack starts at the right of the top station. You can nearly see all the way from the cable car. Cross the small village (left) then turn right at the fountain You come down to the bridge crossing the big river.

Trail Directions
From the main station in Martigny, ask the way to DORENAZ. In the small town Dorenaz, there is a cable car up to Champex d'Alesse. You can hang your bikes under the car and you get with no effort to the top. Cheap!

Summary:
2h ride from 'Zurich' over the housemountain 'Uetliberg' to 'Buchenegg', down to 'Langnau' and back to 'Zurich'

start @ the final station of tram No. 13 (Albisguetli) head upwards following the signs for rest. 'kolbenhof'. pass the restaurant and make a left (100°) right after the height when it starts going downwards again. make a right over the tiny wooden bridge and follow this way for about 1.5km. stay on the left for the whole 1.5km, every junction or slight curve: stay on the left! follow the signs for 'Uetliberg' or 'Kulm' you'll cross an other wooden bright this time a bit larger. make left - a right will direct you highly visible back down towards the city. this is now a small trail, arduous and gritty. after a 10'-15' climb you'll end up beside a playround. cross the playground and follow the way upwards, it is obvious which one. follow up to the top uf the hill -> Uetliberg - Kulm. Here you've got a magnificant view over Zurich, lake Zurich and the hinterland. once you managed to leave thise first acme of the tour behind you, you drive a 100m back, make a left and go on on the mostly broad ridge for the next 6km. cross the 'buechenegg' pass the restaurant 'hexehüüsli' and take the left trail. on this trail stay on the right (2 small junctions turn left - ignore them) follow this way for another 2km and turn left following the sign for 'Langnau'. Great, fast trail-downhill down to 'langnau-gattikon'. here you follow the chilling bike-trail beside the river 'sihl' back to Zurich (~10km)

this ride can easily be elogated up to 3.5h. simply continue on the ridge and keep on going and going and ...
you can't miss the trail!

Recommended Route:
2h ride from 'Zurich' over the housemountain 'Uetliberg' to 'Buchenegg', down to 'Langnau' and back to 'Zurich' 20-25km

Other recommended trails in the same area:
from 'Uetliberg' to 'Stallikon' and back to 'Uetliberg' or 'Buechenegg'
