hikes in early junem for family

hello

family of five with girls ages 13 ,13, and 20 looking for a beautiful hike to while in the lauterbrunnen /wengen,murren area.

A safe bet is the trail from Grutchalp to Murren. It's open most all year, is relatively flat and has great scenery all along the trail.

From the Lauterbrunnen station take the cablecar up to Grutchalp. From the Grutchalp station the trail goes uphill for just a little while then levels out. You can walk all the way to Murren (under 2 hrs) or if you get tired or run into bad weather along the way you can get on the train at Winteregg which is at the half way point.

The trail goes between woods and pastures all along the way and the views to the big three across the valley are spectacular.

Another popular choice is the Mannlichen to Kleine Scheidegg walk above Wengen. In early June you are taking a chance that it may not be open but if it is you should not miss it. You can check with the tourist information office to find out if its open. Take the train to Wengen then the cablecar up to Mannlichen. The walk to Kleine Scheidegg is almost flat and well maintained. It's one of the best in the area for overall scenery if its open.
