This easy hike starts with the winderful monastery of Einsiedeln, goes up to the St Benedikt mémorial, goes down to the lake of Sihl to go along it to the Sihl beach before finally going back to Einsiedeln through the hills. After the visit of the monastery, the trail climbs the hill to the St Benedikt mémorial where one can enjoy a nice view on the countryside, followed a bit further by a plunging view on the lake and the nice small villages. The path along the lake is easy and in summer the beach of Sihl proposes food and drinks. The way goes back along the hillside with a wonderful view on the Alps and Mythen.
