Between huge jutting jags of rock, the roaring rushing water of the River Aa seeks its way down into the valley. This spectacle can be observed on one of the nine stone, metal or suspension bridges crossing the Aa. The 2 hour 15 min trail, after crossing over the first old stone bridge, you reach the beginning of the wild Aaschlucht. The end of the ravine is also marked by an old stone bridge. The remaining length runs flat until Grafenort. From there the train can be taken back to Engelberg. Engelberg-Titlis Tourism
