Description

This dirt road descent is separated from the hiker trails, and is quite steep but rideable with decent brakes. You would have to walk most of it uphill. Follow the red signs that indicate the bike trail.

Follow many switchbacks, mostly through forest, passing by a great waterfall and over several bridges.

You'll end up in Stechelberg, which is a good place for a beer or bite to eat.
