It is a moderately interesting walk from First to Bachalpsee but I personally do not find it very exciting.

We hiked this path on the first day it opened - so clear path w/snow all around us:)
Saw deer, fox, marmonts, even frogs!

Watch for snow frogs and marmots. Most other trails were closed for snow but we weren't disappointed with this hike and had wonderful lunch at First lift station bring sunscreen!

We visited the lake after a long walk and it was beautiful - you are surrounded by stunning countryside and views. And there is a public toilet (might seem insignificant now, but it wasn't after the long walk there!).

Bachalpsee was covered in ice and snow when we visited. This meant that the frogs (yes frogs), marmots, fox, eagles and mountain goats (ibex) were easier to see against the white background. Easy to walk to from top of Grindelwald First lift.
