From Mürren, the asphalt road runs behind the Schilthorn Gondola station to Gimmelwald. The road quickly rises quite steeply. From Gimmelwald the natural road to Schiltalp begins, where the official bike trail ends. Before the 30 minutes passage to Wasenegg begins, the hiking trail leads to the river Schiltbach.
When you arrive on the ridge, a wooden bench and an unbelievable panoramic view will entice you to stay. The fun single trail continues along the slope towards the Rotstock hut. There, you canstop for refreshments and sample the local snacks on offer. Homemade cakes provide the necessary energy for the upcoming descent. Rock slabs, stepped passages, meadows and woods alternate constantly.
