Tour description

On the trails of the old traders from pass Grimsel to Obergesteln. On the old trade route the path leads down from pass Grimsel to Rhone valley to Obergesteln. Again and again one encounters areas where the old trail paving (natural paving or large covers of stony pavers) still remains there. The pathway today is a part of Sbrinz-route. The old trader’s route leads from Luzern via Vierwaldstätter lake upwards the Hasli valley on to Grimsel and then down to Obergesteln. From large parking space at the hotels on Bern‘s side of Grimsel alpine pass one passes the Marmot’s park and then left down to the lake. The pathway leads on southwest lakeside along to the flat counter slope. With scarcely noticeable gradient the path leads to the highest point (2`205 metres above sea level) and from there down into the valley to Obergesteln.
