Alpine Cheese Trail by e-bike, Untertrübsee/Gerschnialp section
The e-bike tour to the Gerschnialp and Untertrübsee leads mostly through woodland so it is perfect for hot, sunny days. There’s also plenty for gourmets to enjoy.

From the start point at Engelberg Abbey’s artisan cheese dairy, the route first leads to the Titlisbahnen cableway valley station and then continues on the left down the tarmac Gerschnistrasse, where there is likely to be a certain amount of traffic, and on to Untertrübsee. The route leads steadily uphill, but with trees screening you from the sun, the going won’t seem so tough. After the woods start to thin out, the road curves a few more times before forking. Here, you take the right-hand road to Untertrübsee, which remains tarmacked. You will pass the Untertrübsee restaurant and Älplerseil cableway before coming to the Untertrübsee Alpine pasture on your left. You can make a stop at the Untertrübsee dairy and purchase some delicious Alpine cheese. You then return to the fork in the road and this time take the other path, towards Gerschnialp. Once you have passed the mountain station of the funicular railway, the route goes by the Ritz mountain restaurant. From there it is just a few metres to the Gerschnialp cheese dairy. You then return to Engelberg along the Gerschnistrasse.

Please note that depending on weather conditions (snow conditions) not all alpine cheese dairies are occupied in June.
