Our hotel recommended this hike as it's considered easy and is incredibly scenic. I suppose it could be considered easy since there isn't any rock climbing or off-trail walking although once you throw altitude into the mix everything becomes less easy. We started the trail...More

My husband and I followed the mountain bike trail from Murren to catch the Northface Trail as it was raining (hard) and we wanted to stay on a hard or gravel surface to avoid mud and slippery terrain. Despite the weather, this was still an...More

In June 2016 My husband and I took the North Face Trail from Murren. The funicular took us up to Allmendhubel to the beginning of the trail. It is the most amazing hike; our most favorite one in Switzerland. We had a spectacular day. We...More

I hiked the North Face trail on a cloudy day. Even though I couldn't see the mountains across the valley (Whose supposed presence was constantly mentioned by the plaques on the trail frequently...), I still enjoyed it because of the rich flower beds. There were...More
