The theme trail starts in Obsee and follows the old stone steps of the Hagsflue along the Balmiflue to the well-known Letzi, where remains of medieval border fortifications can still be found today. After a short descent, the trail regains its old sunken way appearance in the Oberhus area. Proceed along the right side of the valley to Seewli, up to Cholhüttliwald forest, where an old charcoal burner's hut was recently rediscovered. Below the Brünig Arena bend, the original mule track continues over the Bärschwendi towards Italy. The theme trail ends here in the immediate vicinity of the Brünig Pass.

QR codes and an accompanying brochure, available at the Lungern station buffet and the Obwalden Tourism information desk at Sarnen station, help visitors of all ages navigate the trail. Further details of the archaeological research on the Brünig can be consulted online at www.erlebnisausstellung.ch
