The circular trail leads from Steinen railway station through the Blattwald forest, the Sägel fen and then to the Steinerberg with a great view of the valley.
The circular trail "Nach Steinerberg" leads from the village of Steinen along the railway line to Blattiswald. Again and again you come across larches, which are rather rare at low altitudes and in the foothills of the Alps. The circular trail repeatedly offers views of the western shore of Lake Lauerz. In the depressions between the boulders of the landslide, pools form habitats for various amphibian species. In Blattiswald, the circular trail leads through structurally rich cultivated land with hedges, rows of trees and dry stone walls. Past the Steinerberg school and the railway station, the path leads back to the Steinen municipal area shortly after the Mulfisbach stream. The path continues in a varied manner on roads and meadow paths with steps along natural streams, meadows and pastures towards Steinen. The path leads to the publicly accessible playground of the speech therapy school of the canton of SZ and the special school, which invites you to linger. At the end, you can walk comfortably back to Steinen
