About the trail
The hike starts off with a 182 m (600 ft) climb through a narrow asphalt road, running along the cog railway between Interlaken and Grindelwald. The surrounding landscape consists of meadows with chalets. The part between Burglauenen and Schwendi is nearly flat and runs through a forest, parallel to the river Schwarze Lütschine.
