The Horn-Steig is no doubt a very well designed hiking route, in part secured with steel cables. However, sure-footedness, good equipment and routine hiking in mountain areas are required. Old snow fields are a possibility right into the month of June. When it is wet, there is snow and poor visibility refrain from hiking.
