The route is signposted in one direction only:
Jeizinen - Obri Zälg - Bratsch - Gampel.
The first stage takes you along the Jeizibärg path to "Oberi Zälg". You then branch off to the west and cross the Furuwald forest. After passing a ruined building, several technically demanding passages follow on from each other over rocky ground. Two sections, secured by a steel cable, will oblige you to push your mountain bike for about 30 metres and then 20 more. Continue on the path from Bratsch to Gampel until you reach the junction with the wider Jeizibärg path, which is also very popular with hikers and therefore requires attention and respect. It is strongly recommended that you use your bell on this section. Finally, follow the Jeizibärg path, passing by a beautiful chapel and several sculptures along the wayside, to the village of Gampel. A left/right separation between hikers and cyclists offers additional safety.
Gampel can be reached by train (SBB), then the cable car takes you to the starting point in Jeizinen.
From Basel and Zurich: A1 motorway to Bern; A6 to Spiez; direction Kandersteg; car transport Kandersteg - Goppenstein; direction Gampel. From Gampel, cable car to Jeizinen.
