Lauterbrunnen Obersteinberg

By: Alpsinsight
Area: Swiss Alps, Group: Bettmeralp, Peak: Lauterbrunnen Valley, Height: 2146 m, Country: Switzerland, Region: Bern

The Lauterbrunnen Obersteinberg Classic Loop is a trail runner's dream at the back of Lauterbrunnen Valley, unarguably one of Switzerland's masterpieces. On each side of the valley sit the car free villages of Mürren and Wengen, and also the tiny village of Gimmelwald. These are the places to which tourists flow, and from them people venture out to explore the area. In the back of the Lauterbrunnen Valley, starting from the town of Stechelberg, is a loop trail requiring a bit more time and commitment, ideal for trail runners. It's never difficult, mostly runnable singletrack, and always scenic as it passes beneath the Jungfrau Region's icy high crest.

This is a trail runner's dream track. Plus it has a perfectly situated little lake, the Oberhoresee, and classic, old Swiss mountain hotel, the Obersteinberg, at the end of a long traverse just before you begin your descent back into Lauterbrunnen.

This is Sound of Music stuff, and a trail that should top your "Must see to believe" list. It all adds up to a very Happy Place.
