The peak of the Uetlibeg is 2800ft above sea level, and ~1700ft above the lake. The peak is mostly accessible via train (quick 5 minute walk from the station to the summit).
From the summit one has access to a large network of trails. The ones we chose took us south about 2.5 miles along the ridgeline.
From the top one gets an amazing view of the Swiss countryside. As you can see, the views are quite spectacular. This shot is of Lake Zurich.
One gets a good view of the city of Zurich from up here. It seems larger from up here than it does when exploring at street level.
I did, however, make some friends with some cows equipped with GPS collars. The white and brown one on the front left came right up to me and made friends.
At the end of the hike we took a cable car down the mountain, and a train back to Zurich. All in all it was a fantastic end to a great day of hiking in the Swiss countryside.
