This trail has it all; great training in a magnificent landscape. From Grindelwald the route leads to Burglauenen then follows a steep 4km climb to top out with 900m height gain at Bussalp. All the effort will be rewarded here with a fabulous view of the valley below and across to the Eiger north face. A short bus ride from here takes you back to Grindelwald village, while those with the legs for it can continue to Schrind and Wagisbach to complete the 17km trail back at the starting point
