The free sports bus takes you from Engelberg railway station to the Brunni valley station, where you take the cable car to Ristis. The 2.9 km long Riedalp snow shoe trail begins here at the mountain station in an easterly direction. You start on the winter hiking trail "Schneetandliweg" along the edge of the forest to the Ried. From this vantage point the view of the Hahnen is breathtaking. From there it goes up first over an open field then along the forest. Back to the starting point, the trail leads past the game rest zones, parallel to the panorama trail back to the mountain restaurant Ristis. Return to the village by train.
The snowshoe trail can also be walked in the opposite direction.
Snowshoe rental at Brunni: At the Yeti Park on Ristis snowshoes can be rented for CHF 15.00 per day (number of snowshoes is limited, reservation recommended for larger groups!).
Snowshoes can also be hired in the sports shops of Engelberg
