Tour description

Round trip

Ground station skilift Rothwald – This snowshoe trail leads from the ground station of the Rothwald skilift along the marked trail into the upper Rothwald, up the Jochtwald forest and to the panorama restaurant Mäderlicka. From there it descends into the impressive “Durstbachschlucht” gorge to the “Durstbachbrücke” bridge (branching point); then along the groomed Wasmerstrasse/Slope to the Wasenalp mountain inn. Behind the restaurant follow the marked trail over the “Hackber” down to “d’Obru Egge” and then back to the Hotel Ganterwald and over the sidewalk back to the starting point.

The “advanced version”: Walk the trail in the opposite direction. Attention: steep ascent into the gorge!
