Route description

Top of the ferrata - P. 1924 Bäregg

On the north side, tracks lead down onto a broad shoulder with a marking pole. Here the path bends to the left and steeply down over rocky steps into a wide gully. Follow this down (white-blue-white markings), later committing to a short section of down-climbing (grade I) before breaking out into grassy terrain and a junction in the footpath, where you come across the white-red-white markings (which indicate a drop in seriousness). Now relax, turn left and drop gently down to P.1922 above Bäregg.

P. 1924 Bäregg - Sätteli - Tällihütte

From P.1922 above Bäregg; ascend(!) gradually along the base of the Chline Tälli. After a fairly persistent uphill climb (equating to 200 m altitude gain), reach the Sätteli (2116 m), and cross to the south side of the Gadmerflue. With a clear view of the glaciers and peaks south of the Gadmertal, finally drop down into sunny meadows and contour over to the Tällihütte (and cableway).

Variant: descent to Engstlengenalp

At P. 1924 a little above the Bäregg (or further up at P. 2122, unmarked junction) turn right towards Engstlen: reaching first the lake, then the alp. From there take the bus back to Gadmertal (check the timetable first!).

Time

The descent to Engstlenalp (variant) is around an hour shorter and has only a small re-ascent. Especially recommended for those arriving by public transport.

Difficulty / Material

Approach and descent marked rather sparingly (white-blue-white, stone cairns, a few poles). If descending to the north, orientation can be problematic in the fog (as anywhere).
