But that's not all the highlights yet: Starting with a nice, long and easy ascent, which becomes very steep but rideable only shortly before Kleine Scheidegg, and ending with a great descent. This leads from Kleine Scheidegg to Lauterbrunnen with almost 1400 metres of altitude difference, first on a wide gravel path, followed by a single trail. Shady forest paths, steep passages, stairs and tight bends alternate. The easy to medium requirements offer a high fun factor.
Kleine Scheidegg is a popular hiking and excursion destination, so you have to reckon with many hikers.
