UNESCO Biosphäre Entlebuch   - In addition to a long, sporty tour, snowshoe hikers can also expect the idyllic landscape of the UNESCO Entlebuch Biosphere on this trail.

From the Schönenboden valley station of the Brienzer Rothorn aerial cableway, the trail first leads along the connecting slope, later uphill in open terrain to the Alp Schlacht. The trail continues to the Hinterschwarzenegg hut, from where it goes between the Rothorn chain and the 4-seater chairlift up to Blattenegg. The Blattenegg is also the highest point of the trail. Via Türndlimoos and with a magnificent view of the surrounding mountains Rothorn, Schrattenfluh, Tannhorn and Hohgant, the descent is steeper at first and then a little flatter once you reach the Salwideli area. Here the snowshoe hikers can expect an original, untouched natural landscape, quiet and wild at the same time. Under the snow cover there are important and diverse moorlands.

Partially, along the cross-country ski trail you reach the mountain inn Salwideli via Alp Salwiden. The return to Sörenberg (Rischli) is possible with the Salwideli bus.
