The Wolf Trail connects the two villages of Eischoll and Ergisch and owes its name to a special event: in 1946, the last wolf in Valais – for the time being, anyway – was slain between these villages. The hike starts at the church in Unterbäch and leads via the village district of Niwwi Stuba to Bächi and then to the village square of Eischoll. The marked path leads westwards between houses and gardens, past typical Valais barns, across an idyllic stream and through rich mountain flora. You reach Tännholz via Habere and Ried. Here, at the little chapel, there is an information panel about the Wolf Trail as well as a comfortable spot to rest. Continue along a wide forest path to the flowery Alp Ifil, where the path gradually becomes narrower. Through an unspoilt forest, walk up to the Wolfsläger rest stop. Along an old, unused Suon waterway, past wild and romantic rocky spots, you cross the Tännbach stream. At Golantschu, cross the road to Obermatten to reach the village of Ergisch through a beautiful forest path. From Ergisch you can take the hiking bus back to Unterbäch.
