Need to Know
There is a parking area in Gummsteg, which has space for about ten cars.
This hike is exhausting. Make sure to have hiking equipment, especially good shoes. I recommend doing it during the summer in good weather. There are several official ways along the river.
I started at "Gummsteg" in Steffisburg. After 1.5 hours walking along the river, I took the official way back to the street close to the village "Homberg."The next two hours I walked along the road to the village Eriz. From Eriz, you can take the local bus back to Steffisburg.
Flora & Fauna
Be aware of ticks. Check your body after the hike. Avoid stinging nettle.
