“Fantastic trail just renoveted...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

So great to walk in the incredible scenary of the Swiss Alps. You will cross pedestrian bridges between mountains. You must not have vertigo... This place is so nice. You must stop at the small restaurant at the start for a drink and enjoy the view.

“What a great afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

The Swiss are marvellous at building things on steep slopes, and in this case an irrigation canal around a very steep mountain has one scratching their head at how it was originally managed. But today it has been restored and enhanced, and provides the opportunity for a wonderful walk along the gentle torrent. There are a number of suspension bridges to cross and some narrow paths around the side of the mountain, if heights are a real concern then maybe this is not for you. Otherwise, put on the hiking boots and prepare for an unforgettable experience. Magical views are around every corner so take the camera. A small cafe on the trail caters to hikers, but you wil need half a day to fully enjoy the outing so take water etc. Torrent Neuf is open though summer but closes for winter. Check opening dates at one of the tourist information centres. Not to be missed.
