This post covers the 2nd day of the hike from Gigerwald to Elm.
this is the complete 2 day hike as mapped by komoot. The 2nd day is longer with more elevation changes and a long descend at the end. On the other hand, this day offers more views into multiple valleys.
The hike finishes in Elm. The best way to get back to Zurich is probably a bus from Elm Station to Schwanden. From there there is either a direct train to Zurich HB (the route take a bit longer) or a faster route with one more change in Ziegelbrücke.
