On the official mountain running course, the route leads up to the Rugghubel Hut and on to Rotgrätli. On stony ground, over alpine meadows you cross the Bannalper-Schonegg and have a beautiful view of the Bannalp lake. Along the southern shore up to Walegg, from where a breathtaking view over the lower Engelberg valley awaits you. Via Walenalp one returns to the valley basin of Engelberg.
