From 18 October to 14 November 2021, the Lucerne-Lucerne Allmend/Messe railway line will be closed due to expansion work. Rail replacement buses will operate.
The single trail starts on the Gerschnialp above Engelberg. The natural trail leads right through the Gerschniwald forest and offers flowing but also some tricky sections. Individual sections can be ridden or jumped depending on your speed and ability - fun is guaranteed. The trail ends above the hotel/restaurant Bänklialp, from where you can return to the village via the road.
The easiest way to get to the start of the trail is via the tarred Gerschnistrasse road (you must be prepared for industrial traffic) through the forest, up towards Untertrübsee and on to Gerschnialp: Route Engelberg-Gerschnialp
Before the Gerschnialp - Café Ritz inn, the path leads down to the left in the direction of Engelberg to the Gerschniwald.
The bikeshops in Engelberg offer a wide range of bikes and accessories for rent and purchase. Also for repairs and spare parts it is worthwhile to stop by.
A culinary stop in one of the surrounding restaurants or in the alpine cheese dairies is worthwhile in any case:
