What a beautiful spot... ...and right underneath the Wetterhorn North Wall.
There's a regular bus-service between Schwarzwaldalp and Grosse Scheidegg/ Grindelwald
No idea if it still applies, but if staying a night either at the Naturfreundehaus or the SAC (Swiss Alpine Club) Brochhuette in the Rosenlaui Valley (maybe others ?) a free day-pass was available to ride the single-laner across the top into Grindelwald and return later in the day.
What an incredible ride !!

Great piece of engineering, isn't it?

Let's have a look into the saw mill.




Everything is open you just walk inside and look around. The smell of the wood is fantastic.

The confidence in a good behaviour of the visitor is what you rarely find . I hope the organizers will not be disappointed.










This is the water reservoire, between the saw mill shacks you see Hotel Schwarzwaldalp.




Now it's time to turn.






that was Rosenlaui - fantastic


The next valley is up to the Engstlenalp it is on the way to the Sustenpass only a few km after Innertkirchen.






The singlelaner ends up on the parking area of the Engstlenalp. You can hae a walk to the next Alm for something to eat,


but I recommend to walk five minutes to the Engstlensee.






Keys for the rowing boats you get in one of the restaurants. BBQ places or Brätelstellen as the Swiss say, are beside the the lake together with firewood and a toilet.




Engstlenalp is different to Rosenlaui so it's worth to visit both.

But lets move, it's getting late. Back to Innertkirchen, next is Grimsel Pass.

If it is still possible to get a ticket for going further than Schwarzwaldalp would be worth to stay in the Naturfreundehaus.
