Circular walk over the Chapf

Eggiwil–Kapfschwand–Chapf–Holzmatt–Eggiwil (9.3 km, 2 hours 50 mins)

This circular walk allows you to explore the pristine countryside of Emmental with its nooks and gorges, its hills and ravines, its decorated wooden bridges and homely farm buildings. In Eggiwil, you follow the waymarkers to Kapfschwand. The route turns off left shortly after the bridge over the Rötebach brook. The trail leads upwards to Gätzistil. From there, the walk remains relatively level until Kapfschwand. The trail continues through forests and meadows and upwards to the Chapf. Here you can enjoy wonderful views out over the Schrattenfluh, the Alps and the Stockhorn range. From the highest point of the circular walk, the trail leads down towards Höhi Signau and to Junkholz, across the valley bottom from Holzmatt and back to Eggiwil.
