If you want to get up close to the Matterhorn, this is a wonderful way to do it! Most of the trail was slow going for us, due to rock and scree, but the scenery is absolutely breathtaking!

Great hike with my family right to the base of the Matterhorn, at 10,000’. Beautiful glacial lakes, streams, and surreal landscape with no vegetation. Fantastic view of the Alps and distant peaks. Trail well marked. We were lucky to have gorgeous weather and clear skies. Time permitting, I suggest you continue all the way down to Zmutt and then onto Zermatt. An 11 out of ten!
