Hint

Intro

This circular tour of medium difficulty with start and end point at Chrindli offers a varied hike through the Stockhorn region. Hike up instead of just around the Cheibenhorn peak and you will be rewarded with magnificent views of the Alpine summits.

Description

Starting at the Chrindli middle station, the route follows the winter hiking trail round Hinterstockensee lake to Hinterstockenalp, where the actual circular route begins. It follows the summer hiking trail to point 1764, where the trail takes a right turn and ascends steeply through a small snow-covered valley below the Cheibenhorn to the elevation with the signpost indicating the turnoff to Cheibenhorn and Oberstockensee lake. The trail to the magnificent vantage point on the Cheibenhorn follows a narrow ridge. On the summit, views of the Bernese Alps to the south and the Gantrisch chain to the northwest await.

Back at the turnoff point, follow the trail in the direction of Vorderstockenalp. Above the alp huts, the trail turns off in the direction of Oberstockensee, which is reached via a zigzagging descent. The winter trail to Oberstockenalp opens up new vistas, as the trail leads along the southern section of the lake.

From Oberstockenalp, the trail follows the summer hiking trail down to Hinderstockenalp and along the shore of the mostly frozen Hinterstockensee lake back to the Chrindli middle station.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
