The tour starts at the Gruben school and then the first left turn onto the "Berschelstrasse". After about 800 meters the road continues sharp right on gravel. There is a barrier which can be easily opened. The path gets steeper and steeper and ends at the highest point on the alp "Berschel" with a breathtaking view.

From there the downhill run towards "Haldis Bärgli" begins, still on the gravel road. As soon as the path rises again slightly and passes the hut, the route climbs to the right along the path through the forest and then turns left onto the single trail. At the next crossing turn left again onto the "Horevorschessweg" and "Wittereweg" down to Schönried. In some places a little technique is needed, but mostly easy to ride. The tour leads to the valley station "Horneggli" to Schönried and then on the "Grubenstrasse" and over the "Cheserystrasse" to the left back to the schoolhouse Gruben. Don't miss the turn-off to the left from "Grubenstrasse" to "Cheserystrasse".
