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 starting point at the old schoolhouse in 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- and Ober Hüseren, where we turn right and climb gently through the forest to Hüserenweid. Traversing the pasture and the gap in the forest, the route leads steeply up to the former Cholerli farmstead. On a pleasant, barely ascending forest path, we now head across to the Choleren farm and then follow the road towards Altösch. At Ober Altösch (Beizli) we reach the highest point (1,114 m.a.s.l.) on the route. 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 descent, which is gentle at first and becomes steeper and steeper from Stoss. When we reach the bottom we cross the Mülebach stream and follow the edge of the forest back to the Hüseren farmstead. In no time we are back at the starting point at the old schoolhouse in Ried.
