Hi dipscorti. Yes, you can walk from Schwarzwaldalp to the Rosenlaui gorge. I'm not sure how long exactly it will take; it's a little less than 2 kilometres and may take half an hour or 45 minutes. It's part of the route from Grosse Scheidegg to Meiringen. But it's a long travel day already, and walking instead of taking the bus will deprive you of your time in the Rosenlaui gorge. The gorge can't really be compared with the Trümmelbach falls. These aren't a gorge, but spectacular waterfalls within the rock walls of the Lauterbrunnen valley.
An overview of day trips in the Bernese Oberland
may help you decide what you want to do when staying in Interlaken. Most regular train, bus and boat trips are for free with the Swiss Pass; mountain transportation is reduced by 50% in most cases. Please take a look at the synoptic map which shows the validity of the Swiss Pass, by clicking the link 'Overview of the network on which the Swiss Pass is valid' at the Swiss Pass page
. Boat trips on lake Brienz are for free. The white lines on the map I referred to indicate free boat rides.
The SBB timetable is very reliable. In general, 4 or 5 minutes are enough to change trains, especially if you know in advance at what platform you have to be. Announcements in English will also guide you to the correct platform. The travel system itself is realiable as well. Occasionally, a bus or train may get cancelled, but that will be announced as well and alternatives will be available as quickly as possible.
