Route: Starrberg (Benken) – Benknerriet – Staffelriet – Alt Linth

Benknerriet and Staffelriet are located in the Linth Plain at the Zurich-St. Gallen-Chur highway junction, between Tuggen at the Buechberg (631 m above sea level) and Benken at the Benkner Büchel (605 m above sea level), in the cantonal area of Glarus. They are traversed by the river Linth, whose channel is bent in shape due to the Benkner Büchel. From here, a spectacular view of the hill and mountain range of Regelstein-Tanzboden-Speer-Chüemettler-Federispitz opens.
