Trail description

From the centre of Stans, follow the signs into the Wolfsklamm gorge. The first section of the path leads gently uphill, followed by a section with steps and narrow trails along the rock faces and waterfalls. The final section leads over a wooden bridge to the monastery of St. Georgenberg. The route back to Stans is intially the same, but hikers should then cross the bridge and follow the wide "Pilgerweg" trail back down.
