The first section of the trail takes you past the reservoir to Schottenhof Lochsitli. At this point you are still in the UNESCO Entlebuch Biosphere. Covering an area of some 400 square kilometres, the Entlebuch Biosphere boasts the largest and most numerous moorland landscapes in the country as well as a fauna and flora of national importance.
From ‘Lucerne’s Wild West’ you soon cross the cantonal border as the trail continues in the Bernese municipality of Schangnau. You are now on the home turf of ski world champion and Olympic medallist Beat Feuz. Down an asphalt road you hike past several idyllic farms. The Hohgant, Schangnau’s local mountain, seems almost close enough to touch. Soon you reach your destination in Bumbach. The PostBus that takes you back to Marbach conveniently stops directly in front of the cosy Alpenrose Restaurant.
