Hiking to Emmensprung: From the Schüpfheim station to Landbrügg, the trail runs along the Kleine Emme River. After crossing the main road you will hike along the road in the direction of Flühli Sörenberg up to the Eysteg, a bridge which takes you to the left side of the Waldemme River, where the trail leads to Änetämme. On a new country lane you will reach Chlusstalden and then hike along the old Flühlistrasse. Subsequently, follow the trail along the right bank of the river on the edge of the forested slope up to the Lamm Gorge. At Hint. Lamm, the trail switches to the left side of the Waldemme River. It conveys you mostly on new trails to Matzenbach, where you will change over again to the trail on the opposite side of the river, leading you ultimately to the village of Flühli.

Starting in Flühli the hiking trail leads along the righthand bank on previously existing trails up to Usser Sörenbärgli. Now the path follows again the edge of the slope and at times runs directly alongside the Waldemme River up to the Sörenberg Sawmill. Near the Sawmill the trail changes again to the left side and and then leads on existing trails to Sörenberg and Flüehüttenboden. From Flüehüttenboden to Schäfersgfäl, there is a newly consstructed path. You will then hike along existing trails to the valley station of the aerial cableway "Brienzer Rothorn", which is the end or, respectively, the beginning of the Emmen Riverside Trail.
