Leave the Dorfstrasse before the last houses in the direction of Frutigen - i.e. at Wätterbachweg. Turn right and start climbing up the slopes through semi-woodland; the route is pleasantly sheltered in dappled shade during the mornings. A well maintained path with some steep sections that continues below Wätterbach forestry hut into the Alpine meadows. Cross the Alpine meadows and continue to Oeschinensee cable car mountain station.
