Turn-by-turn directions

The snoweshoe hike starts in Kandellen/Gandelle and leads on forest path no. 25 in a north-easterly direction. The first part of the trail in the forest is quite steep. Then the hike crosses a bridge and always leads slightly uphill to the tree line. Above the tree line, the tour leads over the striking southern ridge of the mountain to the Bonner hut (closed in winter), which is located at 2,340 m.
