About the trail

This trail passes through two different landscapes, because you'll be walking at two different altitudes. Section 1, at about 1100 m, is in the valley of Engelberg. Section 2, at almost 1800 m, is on the plateau of the Trüebsee (Lake Trüeb), at the base of the Titlis.

Section 1: the valley

The trail starts in Engelberg, at the valley station of the cable car to the Titlis. You'll gradually ascend as you walk along the edge of the forests. Then, at Unter Trüebsee, you'll reach the little cable car that takes you up to Ober Trüebsee.

Section 2: the plateau

The second section is at the plateau of Ober Trüebsee. The trail is nearly flat here. You'll have wonderful views of the valley of Engelberg, the Titlis, the Wendenstock and many other mountains. The last part of the trail runs along the Trüebsee. Finally you'll reach the cable car station of Trüebsee, where you can either go up to the summit of the Titlis, or down to Engelberg.
