12.25 km long
Hiking Trail

The good level of fitness required to complete this hike is rewarded with a wonderful nature experience. Follow the signs on the alp trail until you reach the small village of Isenfluh. From here, the trail leads over sunny Alpine meadows and through a ruggedly picturesque mountain forest. A narrow mountain trail continues through a moderately exposed field of scree to the huts at Sausläger (please note - this trail is suitable for surefooted hikers only). Romantic Saustal Valley; Further on, the trail crosses the Sausbach, a stream winding its stately way through the pristine alp floor. The wide, shingle-carpeted riverbed is ideal for playing in and damming and the Saustal Valley opens up a variety of views and perspectives of the snow-capped icons of the Bernese Alps. An easy ascent leads you to the junction at Sausläger, from where you can hike to the tiny yet idyllic Lake Röschwaldsee. Through the trees you can catch stunning glimpses of Schynige Platte and Isenfluh. A varied, undulating trail follows the slope, leading after a short while into the forest and from there into the valley and the descent to Grütschalp station.
