From the mountain station at Sillerenbühl, the path leads in the direction of the Silleren lake, offering a magnificent view over the Engstligen valley towards Aeschi and Beatenberg. The path loops the edge of the forest next to the ski piste and joins the Hintersillerenstrasse from where you make another loop through winter forests to the Restaurant Aebi. From there you can decide on the route back to Adelboden - via Schermtanne (restaurant, bus stop) or Gilbach (restaurant, bus stop).

Von der Bergstation Sillerenbühl führt der Weg Richtung Sillereneseeli und bietet eine herrliche Aussicht über das Engstligental bis in die Gegend von Aeschi und Beatenberg. In Schlaufen führt der Weg am Waldrand neben der Piste vorbei und mündet dann in die Hintersillerenstrasse, auf der man in einem weiten Bogen durch winterliche Wälder zum Restaurant Aebi gelangt. Von dort kann die Wanderung wahlweise nach Schermtanne (Restaurant, Bushalt), Gilbach (Restaurant, Bushalt) oder bis nach Adelboden fortgesetzt werden.
