Turn-by-turn directions

At the summit station of the Gargellen mountain cable cars at the Schafberg Hüsli mountain restaurant, the hike starts along the forest road down to Gargellen. In 35 minutes you reach, about halfway, the rustic Obwaldhütte. A stop for a bite to eat is worthwhile. On the terrace you can admire a carved wooden figure representing the wandering bear Bruno. In 2006 the Bruno bear was in the headlines every day for a while. Interesting reports on this topic can be viewed. On the way to the toilets there is even a footprint to marvel at. After a strengthening you hike the forest road further into the valley. After the hut you make in the zigzag vertical meters into the valley and touch then the local part Vergalda, which lies somewhat above the center of Gargellen. At the "Gitzistee" follow the signs to the valley station. You will reach it after about 20 minutes.
