On the old mule track from the Grimsel Pass down into the Rhone Valley to Obergesteln. Again and again you will find places where the old road surface (natural pavement or large covers with stone slabs) is still intact. Today the path is part of the Sbrinz route. The old trade route led from Lucerne via Lake Lucerne, the Haslital up to Grimsel and then down to Obergesteln.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the large car park at the hotels on the Bern side of the Grimsel Pass, walk past the Marmeltierpark and then left down to the lake. The path leads along the southwestern shore of the lake to the flat opposite slope. With hardly noticeable gradient the path leads to the highest point (2'205 m.a.s.l.) and from here down into the valley to Obergesteln.
