This trail is one of 67 wheelchair accessible trails across Switzerland described on the Mobility International Switzerland website:The section from Sarnen to Alpnach is particularly attractive thanks to its enchanting nature reserve on the Wichelsee lake. Simply a must-see, from the wide variety of waterfowl and plants to the massive rock faces on the other side of the lake.The route begins in the small, historic town of Sarnen and leads out of the town alongside the Sarner Aa river. The region is notable for its extensive, lush green fields and meadows and the outlines of the mountains in the background. You pass a wooden bridge and reach the Wichelsee lake through which the Sarner Aa flows. It affords a breathtaking view of the waters and over the green valley. The nature reserve fulfils every wish. Gnarled trees, wild-growing, colourful shrubbery and a wide variety of plants line the lake shore. It is truly a paradise with various species of animals, which romp in and around the lake. The rock formations, which tower out of the water on the opposite side of the lake, are also remarkable. Peaceful bays and barbecue spots offer resting places. The path continues through a shady section of woodland to the dam. Here you cross a bridge, after which a wonderful view of the Alpnachtal valley opens out. Mount Pilatus can also be seen from here in good weather. Finally the route leads past the Alpnach airfield to the centre of the town.
