If you think about Switzerland then mountains are definitely one of the first things that come into your mind. And mountains = the Alps. Actually there is another mountain range in Switzerland - Jura. Jura is much older and also much lower and hiking in Jura is completely different experience than hiking in the Alps.
I live in a village that is on the foot of Jura and about 4 km from where I live begins one of the nine Swiss national hiking routes - Jura Crest Trail. The first section of it I've walked quite a few times already but I've been curious about the other sections as well. So I decided to go and check out the section that starts near Olten.
|Starting point of my hike|
|The destination peak - Belchenflue|
|Troops from Bern|
|Troops from Ticino|
|Almost on the top of Belchenflue|
|View from the top towards Aargau canton|
|View from the top towards cantons Solothurn and Basel Land|
|Views when descending|
I plan to continue exploring Jura mountain range. It's probably too much for this year, but I'd like to walk through all the stages of Jura Crest Trail. So this means that I have to return and resume the hike from Hägendorf.
