From Trub via Höstulle and Grüebli up to the Napf

Hike from Trub, via Fankhaus, Höstulle, Grüebli and Napf, to Mettlenalp

Listen to the soothing sound of the stream as you make your way along an idyllic path from Trub towards the Napf region. Afterwards, enjoy the fresh air and the majestic beauty of the ridge path, which leads you to breathtaking viewpoints. Escape from everyday life and immerse yourself in a world of untouched nature.

Travel in comfort with the BLS to "Trubschachen" and continue by bus to "Trub, Löwenplatz".

Route description

The hike starts from the village of Trub and follows the River Trueb and the Fankhusbach stream. In Fankhaus, you leave the rush of the stream behind and follow the existing hiking trail to the left as far as Lenn. The path now branches off to the right and climbs to Buechi and on over the ridge via Höstulle to Grüebli. From here, you head steeply uphill one last time around Schlegelgrabe up to Napf. Then follows the roughly hour-long descent to Mettlenalp.
