Bärgmandlipfad Giswil

At the center of this circular walk is Giswilerstock, the local mountain. On the Bärgmandlipfad you work your way around this huge limestone massif following ancient routes that lead from pasture to pasture.
The trail provides wonderful views; to the south is Haslital with the Bernese Alps and the Wetterhorn chain beyond it; westward lies Mariental with the imposing Schrattenfluh; to the north are the Ried Alps bordering Mount Pilatus; and finally to the east is the lovely Sarneraatal. Along the way you can have a hearty meal at one of the local restaurants. For fit hikers, a short detour up to the summit of Giswilerstock is a rewarding destination.

This area is extremely rich in legends, such as that of the Bärgmandli character. In addition, the local geology, flora and fauna are described in the Bärgmandlipfad brochure. Many parts of the path take you through a no-hunting zone where wild animals can rest. There you might observe chamois, deer and also the golden eagle. In springtime, the trail features a superb cross-section of alpine flora.
