I'll be traveling from Montreux to Bern. I suppose it could be done in a day with and e-bike. I haven't looked too far into that possibility. I expect it will come down to the train. I've been peering at maps trying to finger out where I might be able to get off the train leaving myself a 2 or 3 hour walk into Bern. I came into Bern before by bike from Biel. There was a nice wooded area on the outskirts that would have been pleasant to walk. I don't see any likely approaches coming from Montreux. Perhaps there is something in between where I could get off the rails and walk awhile before getting back on. Maps don't often make train routes and stations obvious. SSB schedules don't fill in blanks if you don't know the small stations best I can tell. 'Preciate any advice.

Hi Jack,

A walk in the area of the medieval town of Gruyères might be nice if you haven't been there before. Here's a map with hiking trails and train stops:
