Brevity is the spice of life: start at the former cableways terminus. Follow the signposts to Stäubiloch, where it starts getting hilly as you head for the Aa Alp and Teufiboden.

With the Hochstollen and Brünighaupt in the background, continue heading towards the Glogghuis and after a few more little rises and falls you reach the Blauseeli lake.

Enjoy the tranquillity and let the pristine setting weave its magic on you before you tramp via Vogelbüel back to Frutt.

The trail is ideal for beginners and families with children - not least because on the way back to Melchsee-Frutt you cross the Fruttliland adventure playground.
