A bus takes hikers and others up to the nearly 2000-meter-high Grosse Scheidegg. The road, with its narrow hairpin curves, is otherwise closed to the public. Once there, begin hiking towards the First. At Point 2006 a mountain trail forks off. Shortly before reaching the mountain station of the First chairlift, take the left fork. There is a rather steep descent to the plateau of Bort. From here, the route continues straight down to Grindelwald. In the last part of the hike, the trail leads through fairly dense forests.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
Is the road open to cyclists?
