Lake Trüb (Engelberg) – Jochpass – Obertrübsee – Untertrübsee – Engelberg
All kinds of walks can be planned in the Lake Trüb area, such as from the Titlis-Xpress terminus directly up to the Joch Pass, where the Bärghuis Jochpass serves the best Gschlabber, a dessert featuring raspberry and quark. Another route via Rossboden and along Lake Trüb takes you to the little Älplerseil cableway: this brings you down to Untertrübsee, where you can buy alp cheese before your return to Engelberg.
