We took the train up to Kleine Scheidig and hiked down to Wengen. Doing the trail in reverse made it workable for my pregnant wife, it was easy and paved, and the views were absolutely stunning. Don’t be discouraged by cloudy weather forecasts. We moved in an out of cloud patches, and while the views were sometimes obscured, we enjoyed the dynamics of it. Very sublime.

Very steep but not crowded and well kept. Plan for 2-4 hours. You can take the Gondola down

This trail is consistently steep for the first half. There’s a portion of the hike where cows are free roaming. There are gorgeous views and the chimes of cowbells makes this hike so idyllic. It was lovely.

absolutely AMAZING VIEWS! long and fairly steep in places, but the views are SO worth it. We got off the train at Wengen, and trekked all the way to Kleine Sheidegg- all in all 4.3 miles, approx 2 hours. Lots of stops for photos!

This was a pretty tiring hike, the elevation gain was pretty steep but the views were amazing especially once you get up close to the Alps.

Great hike with some fairly steep climbs along the way. If the clouds lift, the views are stunning on the upper half of the hike. Trails were well marked but there are still quite a few intersections/ cattle crossings so pay attention to the map and GPS to stay on course. A few times you need to duck under cattle crossing ropes or guards.

Fantastic scenery! first 3 km are relentless uphill on a mostly paved path crisscrossing with bike paths. After Alipigen the trail is more rocky, still uphill but not as steep.No shade until you are in the shadow of the Eiger (about 20-30min).Was fine wearing running shoes.

I wouldn’t rate this as hard as, although it is steep at the end, the climb is rather gradual and the trail is well marked and in great shape. No need to scramble or search for the trail and if you have a water filter there are plenty of places to fill up. Amazing views throughout the entire trek, it’s a world-class hike and worth every step. If you want to continue you can go about 4 more miles to Männlichen and take the cable car down, or hike back down from there, although that last mile is extremely steep back to Wengen.

One of my favourite hikes ever! Spectacular views and friendly people along the way.

What a hike, left at 8am. Quiet trek with no one around except cows and squirrels. Up hill all the way but honestly worth it as you wave to the train loads of tourists trying to get that one quick photo

Get off the train at Eigergletscher and walk down past the reservoir to the Kleine Scheidegg station. Take some time to soak your feet at the reservoir. This place is amazing.

We took the gondola from Wengen to Mannlichen and hiked down. It would take a couple of hours if you didn’t stop every 50m like we did to take another photo. This place is crazy beautiful.

Know this going in- it is solidly uphill 90% of the trip. For this 48 year old, mildly active, healthy weight female... I was hugging and puffing during most of it. Just when you think you can’t take another step, the trail opens up to meadows and VIEWS. I had to keep reminding myself I’m in the alps! Like, so surreal. It’s an absolutely phenomenal hike. Then the sweet town of KS has food and coffee and trinkets etc. My first time hiking in the alps and it was beautiful.

Gorgeous trail, epic views. The first half coming up from Wengen was in the trees (lovely shade) and then it opens up to amazing views of the glaciers and big 3 mountains. Probably took us double the time with all the necessary photo stops. Felt like an easy hike but 3,000+ ft elevation gain made for a solid day.

has to be one of my fav ever walks. spectacular vistas on every switch back. trail starts through woodlands before breaking out onto the mountain side. some parts walk along edges with steep drops but over grass not rock. definitely challenging to difficult but taken at your own time is achievable for any regular walker and the reward will as me have you finishing with a big smile on your face!

fabulous views. did this in reverse order. the loss of elevation was steep in large parts. If wet could be difficult with footing. 3 or 4 lunch stops (restaurants) along the trail.

I hiked from Wengen to Kleine Scheidegg during late June. There are heavenly panoramas of Jungfrau, Mönch, and Eiger. Bring plenty of H20 and a snack. The only distraction was sound of helicopters near Wengen, but the incline helps keep one focused. ;)

Nice trail with incredible views! We hiked in reverse.

Agree with another person who said trail 42 on the hiking maps is wonderful. You pass the scenic vistas of the Eiger, Monsch, and Jungfrau. You also hike through meadows and forest. We went from Kleine Scheidegg to Wengen and there are definitely some tough spots with a lot of rocks but the terrain is very varied so you are never too long on one type of trail.

Lovely walk down from KS, took a few shortcuts but all roads lead to Wengen

We took the cable car up and walked down to Wengen. Not for the faint of heart but doable for those in moderate shape (like us beer drinking upper 30 somethings). It was muddy and we were really hurting for a hiking stick to help with balance or some more aggressive hiking shoes (we were in ultralights). The reverse hike begins at the cable car (make sure to first hike the Summit trail, worth it). It spirals down and begins switchbacks on a STEEP decline. After much of this you make it to trees, goats, and shade. Trail goes though a full delicious smelling forest, some charming cow fields (seriously, the bells are amazing), and then you walk via road back into Wengen.

An absolutely stunning trail, mostly downhill with plenty of places to stop to catch your breath and take in the view which features some of the most incredible scenery. Accessing the start point is extremely easy by just catching the train up from the bottom.

This is a great trail. It is pretty hard, but if you are in decent shape, not an issue. We did it in the rain, so the footing was a little tough in a few spots. We opted not to hike back down, we just walked down to Kleine Scheidegg and walked back to Wengen.

This is an epic trail and if you are in Switzerland for first time, a real gem. Keep in mind that when you look at hiking map of the area, choose trail 42. This trail skirts the outside of the range and the vistas are amazing. You can get to Kleine Scheidegg a couple other ways, but trail 42 is the best in my view. The hike back down to Wengen is also nice, or you can take the train!
