The 2.5 km long medium-difficulty section leads through the forest to the bus stop Obegg. 

Take the bus from the Zweisimmen train station to the starting point Heimchueweid. This is where the 2.5-kilometer-long, moderately difficult and winding trail begins. It is located almost exclusively in the forest. Once you have arrived at the Obegg stop, you can either take the bus or walk back to the station - or walk up again to the start.

Walking distance of about 1 km from the bus stop Obegg (end of the toboggan run) to the train station (alternatively there is also a bus).

If you have more time, you can start the toboggan run at Sparenmoos. The route from Sparenmoos to Heimchueweid leads across snowy meadows and through forest sections. It is not very steep and is suitable for families.
