Half-Day Workout above Grindelwald Map

Really? This is Grindelwald...the views silly!


The ride up to Grosse Scheidegg seems endless at times but once you're there the views across to Kleine Scheidegg, First, The Eiger are incredible! The ride across to First and up to Bachalp See are fun if not a bit busy with Asian punters so take care around the lake.

Coming down...well...it helps if you're a comfortable technical rider as some sections are tricky... Once on the mountain road and hiking paths...depending on your hunger for adventure the straight drop into town which can get pretty gnarly as you can really get into stupid-speed mode...and you won't have too much time to enjoy the views if you do it in one go. But don't worry, you can do it tomorrow again!



Mostly stable trail tread with some variability, with unavoidable obstacles 8in/20cm tall or less. Other obstacles such as rock gullies and steep sections may exist. Ideal for lower intermediate riders.
