The alpine route connecting Braunwald to Lake Oberblegi and down to Schwanden leads hikers through the weird rock formations of the moranes of the Glaernisch Range. Indeed, the deep-blue lake itself was created by moranes that dammed the melting waters. Rushing mountain streams and beautiful alpine flowers round off the picture.

Description

Leave Braunwald on a gently inclining route until you hit zum Unterstafel of the Braunwald Alp. A trail that winds through flowering meadows and through sparse forests winds up at the Bösbächi ("bad stream" in the local dialect). Then hike through an imposing morane before you sight the lake. The lake is surrounded by beautiful pastures. Then descend along a steep route touching the Leuggel Stream, the Schwächeten Stream, and the Steini Stream and wind up in Leuggelen. Cross through Aenneteggen and the historic village center of Thon and then wind up in Schwanden, at the bottom of the Linthal Valley.
