From the “Susten Passhöhe” postbus stop, the route firstly climbs to the actual pass height. Then, you will walk down the old Sustenstrasse to the Alp Hinterfeld. Those needing a little fortification can enjoy some freshly-made Alpine cheese and yoghurt there. The route then continues down to Wassen.
