The trail climbs the steep valley of the Mellichbach river, where chamois often gather. The precipitous terrain at the foot of the Rimpfischhorn is home to particularly hardy life forms: pioneer plants and lichens colonise the scree, while now and again a bird of prey may be seen circling high in the clear mountain air. A cold breeze descends from the Längflue Glacier and its perennial snows.
The trail leads past small nameless lakes up to the Pfulwe. This region is popular in winter among ski tourers and freeriders. The descent into the lush green landscape around Fluhalp reveals a fine view of the Schwarzgrat ridge of the Fluehorn.
Important! A good head for heights, a sure foot and mountain experience are needed
