The Crew Day Report – Obere Bogmen

The Speer is a beautiful mountain overlooking the region of Lake Zurich and Lake Walenstadt in the Canton of St. Gallen. It is popular for it’s amazing view of the Alps. We didn’t go all the way up to the Speer but instead did a nice round tour.

Directions

About 500 meters after the restaurant called “Alpwirtschaft Vorderwengi” we parked our car. From there on we walked on a gravel path along the Wengi stream. After about 15 minutes we leave the gravel path and continue on a more narrow path. At the first junction we take the left. After about 200 meters we get to another junction and take the right in direction Speer. After a while you get to the next junction. The left path will take you straight to the Speer, but we decided to take the right path and walk along the mountainside. After about 20-30 minutes you can either go up in direction Chuemettler or go down to the restaurant called Truebsiten (1525 masl). We went down to the restaurant, had a beer and continued to the Obere Bogmen. We walked through the forest until we reached the next restaurant at Obere Bogmen (1374 masl). From there, there’s a narrow path leading back to the parking lot.
