Great views of the Matterhorn from Schwarzsee. Did this hike in October and encountered very little traffic. I started from Zermatt and walked to the trail head from the train station. Some paved trail/road for first mile or so. Wooded with views of nearby glaciers. Once above the treeline the Matterhorn becomes visible over the ridge.
