in the west of the Hasliberg
On sections of original alp and access paths over the heights of Hohfluh in a loop from the alp to the western village of Hohfluh
Attention: the trail will be officially signposted from June 2022.
Instead of a very steep descent, we follow a loop to the west over sections of a trail network that provided connections for humans and animals before the construction of the Hasliberg road (1907 from the Brünig) and the later alpine roads.
Below Balisalp after the alpine bridge, we walk along a first section through alpine meadows and forest that is not passable. After a few metres along the Vogelgraben, which is similar to a torrent, we leave the alpine road again to reach the Vorsasse on Halgenfluh on a remote former alpine ascent path. Through further remote Vorsasse, changing the cantonal border several times, we find a rock pulpit with a great view on Tschorren at the lower edge of the military installation. Descending steeply for a short while in the forest, we reach the "Panoramaweg" coming from the Brünig via the "Alte Tschorrenweg" below the Haslibergstrasse. Follow this through agricultural land to the village of Hohfluh.
