The moderately difficult Helsana Trail from Schönried on the sunny plateau.

The beautiful Helsana Trail starts at the chalet village of Schönried. This tranquil route takes you through an enchanting unspoilt landscape of typical Swiss picture-postcard beauty.

No sooner do you leave the village of Schönried than you start your descent. Surrounded by flowering meadows, shady forests and rolling hills, this route is pleasantly relaxing. It first takes you on the promenade path towards Saanenmöser. Along the way you will be able to admire the typical local chalet-style farmsteads in their original form. After about 2 kilometres, there is an upward slope of some 100 vertical metres. Now you find yourself on a higher trail for the pleasant walk towards Schlittmoos and then back to Schönried.

Firm, wide gravel path, partly roadway (official trail)
Good trail running shoes are recommended
