The classic long distance trail on the Jura Crest Zurich to Geneva

The Jura Crest Trail is considered the classic among national long-distance trails. Signalization of the route, starting at Zurich and ending just before Genève, began as early as 1905. It links two  major Swiss towns and as the name suggests, leads over the Swiss Jura heights. This makes a sweeping arc towards the north west, so those hiking this trail go a little round the bend–and over the language boundary
