This trail runs beside the Louwibach as it leads from Gstaad to Lauenen and from there via Fang and the Hintersee up to the Lauenensee. You can ride beside the beautiful lake and continue on to the parking lot. After the bridge over the Gältebach, turn left and ride to the Rossfalleschlucht / Rohr-Öy. Once there, you push your bike over the bridge and pass through Rohr and on to Lauenen. At Alpenland turn left and right again and, from Chüngi, go along the trails beside the stream back to Gstaad.
