Trub Snowshoe Trail

Circular hike (6.2 km, 2 hrs. 20 min.)

A varied snowshoe circuit awaits you in Trub in the Emmental. In the hilly terrain of the Napf region, you hike through snow-covered forests and meadows. The wintry setting and the far-reaching views over the area’s “Höger”, or hills, make this route an unforgettable experience in the Emmental.

Travel directly and in comfort by train from Bern and Lucerne to Trubschachen and onward by bus to Trub, Ried.

Snowshoe trail

From the bus stop "Trub, Ried", the snowshoe trail leads across to the Fankhusbach. It’s worth waiting to put your snowshoes on until after you have crossed the wooden bridge. Now the route leads across the plain to the farms of Unter Häusern. The path continues along the edge of the forest to Hinter Mühlebach. Traversing the pasture and the gap in the forest, the route leads steeply up to Vorder Kohleren. On a pleasant, barely ascending forest path, we now head across to the Kohlern farm. After crossing the road, there is an ascent across the meadow to the forest. A short wooded section is crossed before descending to the farm at Point 1103 and continuing to Ober Altösch. At Ober Altösch (pub), to the north, we are greeted by the Napf and the striking building upon it, while opposite, to the south, we have a magnificent view of the Alps. Now begins the initially gentle descent, which becomes steeper as you approach Neuscheuer, until you reach Schneiderhausweid. The path then follows alongside Fankhusbach via Unter Häusern, back to the starting point at the bus stop "Trub, Ried".
