The return route leads through the village of Kerns, branches off at the roundabout in the direction of Melchsee Frutt and after about 150 m turns right towards Flüeli Ranft. Before the first ascent, the path branches off to the right again, passing a market garden, and soon afterwards you enjoy a descent through a lovely valley along the Grosse Melchaa back to Sarnen. You cross the motorway in Sarnen through a subway. Some 100 m further on, a bridge crosses the motorway and the route follows this road to the Rütimattli junction. The road offers views of Lake Sarnen and the valley. After the village of Sachseln, the regular road leads back to the starting point in Giswil.
The route can also be completed in the opposite direction.
The tour can be started anywhere along the route.
