We took the cable car up to First then hiked past the lake. From there the trail gets steeper but continues to be rewarding, ever changing views and we saw cows and goats! We bypassed Faulhorn and started on the trail to Schynige Platte - there is a beautiful valley and a very blue lake down to the right. Eventually we turned around, hit the cliff walk on the way back and came down on the cable car. This is a busy trail (better first thing in the AM like we did it) but completely worth it. Our most beautiful hike so far!

Magnificent views. Moderate level work to get to the lake with spectacular views the entire time. The walk to the end of the lake was easy and beautiful. We walked further up the mountain through the alpine meadows to Faulhorn, about 2 hours of pretty vigorous hiking with a steady climb, about 50 minutes back. Amazing view of The Lake Brienz valley.

Didn’t have enough time to hike to the lake and catch the gondola.

Super hike not against the app indicates that you can access the departure of the hike by car while it is strictly forbidden. So we left by car ... before turning around and take the cable car (60 euros per head).

The beginning part of the trail from First is a steady incline but it levels out the rest of the way to the lakes. The views are intense and the lakes are stunning. Walk all the way around them. Most people don’t it seems. Great place for a picnic or a swim if the water temperature doesn’t bother you.

We did this trail a few years ago with our kids - age 8 and 6 at ther time. The trail is pretty easy, the views are stunning, and we felt like we were in heaven. I would highly recommend this trail. I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

Easy trail, Fantastic view.
