Zurich is the city for walkers and hikers as there are many lovely trails in the mountains and forests. Coming from Chicago, I haven’t done much hiking in the forest or up the mountain.  But I’ve given myself three personal challenges: 1.

Push myself to get my nose out of books and be more physically active.

My first adventure in the hiking world was up in the woods above Zurich.  We took tram #15 to the Romerhof stop then hopped on the little red Dolderbahn, a cogwheel railway train to
