This trail is one of 67 wheelchair accessible trails across Switzerland described on the Mobility International Switzerland website:The section from Rapperswil to Schmerikon is a true feast for the eyes. For all who appreciate peaceful, remote paths through idyllic countryside, romantic villages and lush vegetation on the shores of a glistening lake.The route begins in Rapperswil, a popular town with many attractions on the Zürichsee lake. The route leads mostly along gravel paths in the direction of Schmerikon, at first along the side of the lake with views of charming, small landing stages with colourful boats, the beautiful lake, and then past the Strandbad (lido). The route then turns inwards revealing an agricultural region with lush fields, grazing pastures and meadows. Now and then you catch glimpses of the lake on the horizon. In Jona you turn towards the lake again at a small yacht harbour, to again pass verdant meadows with individual gnarled trees before reaching Bollingen. In Bollingen the route continues at a higher level, affording spectacular views of the lake and countryside all the way to Schmerikon. The untouched lakeside areas make a wonderful sight. An ancient chapel surrounded by greenery on the outskirts of Bollingen is the crowning glory of this idyllic route before you finally reach Schmerikon.
