The Swiss Alps are synonymous with Switzerland and the main draw for tourists and locals alike. An incredible network of signed bike routes and hiking trails have been developed not only through the Alps but connecting to all the cities in the country. Join David Loutzenheiser on a journey through Switzerland by foot and bike exploring how the journey is just as exciting as the destination. Also learn about an effort to bring such a trail network to the Boston area.
