You can get from Grindelwald to First with the First Aerial Cableway. During the ride in the gondola, hikers can enjoy a unique view of the Grindelwald Glacier and the Eiger North Face on the opposite side of the valley. Once you arrive at 2168 metres above sea level, the trail begins right next to the summit station. Diverse alpine flora borders the wayside. Gentian, thistles, blue vervain, leopard's bane, cotton grass and mountain anemones are just a few flowers and herbs that can be discovered using the detailed signs. After a roughly fifty minute, gently rising walk you reach Lake Bachalpsee. The unique view of the Schreckhorn and the Finstaarhorn, the highest mountain in the Bernese Alps, is breathtaking. Shortly before Lake Bachalpsee, the flower trail continues towards Bachläger and Waldspitz. Babbling brooks are all around you. From Bachläger, the walk takes approximately 20 more minutes before you arrive in Waldspitz. Below the restaurant, the path turns into the woods and winds sometimes quite steeply through the forest and small high moorland. After another 40 minutes, you arrive at the Bort middle station of the First Aerial Cableway. If you have had enough of walking, you can grab a trottibike scooter and whizz to Grindelwald or ride down on the First Aerial Cableway.
