I did it backwards, from Kleine Scheidegg down to Wengen. Very easy to do with beautiful scenery. Expect cows and lots of flowers.

One of the most beautiful hikes I've done in the area. We did it on the way down, however, which is not ideal on the knees. Would recommend doing it on the way up

My boyfriend and I hiked up from Wengen and down to Grindelwald. This was one of the first hikes I’ve ever done. The views were incredible, the way down to Grindelwald was brutal on our calves but definitely worth it.

An amazing hike with incredible views of the mountains, local wildlife, and quaint log houses. Parts of the trail was blocked by fallen trees but easy enough to climb over. Other parts were covered in snow and ice so some careful stepping is required. Going from Wengen to Kleine Scheidegg to Grindelwald is the easiest way. In the opposite direction it would have been a long climb up to Kleine Scheidegg from Grindelwald and dicey climb down to Wengen with all the ice during this time of year.

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.

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.

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

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.

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. ;)

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.

First to Review

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!
