Niederrickenbach - Musenalp "Siebnertour"

A short trip on the Dallenwil – Niederrickenbach cableway takes you to the Niederrickenbach mountain station. The chapel square is just a few minutes’ walk along the village lane. You hike on a level road, past the pilgrimage chapel. After about 15 minutes you reach the bridge over the Bouholz stream. From there, it is about five minutes uphill to the Haldigrat cableway mountain station. The chairlift then takes you up to the Haldigrat. Enjoy a break at the Haldigrat mountain guesthouse and the panoramic views from its terrace. Once you’ve rested up, you can hike on towards Brisen, over the first two upward sections of the summit ridge. The descent toward the SAC mountain hut Brisenhuis begins in a small break in the ridge after the Lauwissstock. This stony and occasionally very steep path leads down between the jutting cliffs, the Waldbruder and the Zwelfer to the Brisenhuis with its typical SAC atmosphere. Here, you can take a second rest, if you like.

From the hut, you continue down to the Morschfeld alp. Turn right and follow the route towards Bärfällen, past one of the oldest mountain huts in the canton of Nidwalden. To the right of the ridge you follow a narrow path, which after around 100 metres takes you into the forest. Here begins the steep ascent over rocks and boulders to the Musenalp. But you needn’t fear, as the path is well laid out and secured with cables. At the top, you are welcomed by the magnificent mountain landscape of the lower Musenalp. A final ascent on a good mountain path takes you up to the Musenalp. If you have enough energy left, climb up to the highest point on the Musenalp and admire the incredible 360-degree views from the top. You can then take the Musenalp cableway down to Niederrickenbach, where you can make a final stop in the cosy Pilgerhaus restaurant before heading off back down to Dallenwil.
