Hi everyone,

This site has been an amazing resource, thank you! I'm trying to find out if the hiking trail from the Gelmerbahn funicular to Gelmersee Lake is still closed from a previous rock fall?

Thank you very much,

Jennifer

Hi Jennifer,

I can't find any details on any hike there being closed. TO be sure there is a contact page on their website here (http://www.grimselwelt .ch/en/); it may be best to contact them directly.

We were just there...no closures. The hike around Gelmersee was a true highlight of our trip.

Thanks OHGeologist!

I only found an old web page at MySwitzerland that said there was a rock slide in 2016....they couldn't inform me if it was cleared though. :(

I'm itching to go there!
