Nº 5 The Jura Peak trail
Dielsdorf – Nyon

The Jura Crest Trail is Switzerland’s gentle long-distance hike. It links Zurich and Lake Geneva in a sweeping arc.

Over 15 days, the oldest long-distance hiking trail in Switzerland passes through the unique Jura landscape, with its distinctive barrenness and vast expanse. Alongside highlights such as the natural rock arena of Creux du Van, the Jura Crest Trail provides hikers with fantastic views of the distant Alps and traditional hospitality along the way.
