Description

Start from Riffelalp and head east, straight up the mountain on the access road. The road will turn to your left and flatten somewhat before again turning right and climbing again. The road will flatten for a short time as you reach the train tracks. Now the road will climb steeply as it follows the train tracks to Riffelberg.
