Great trail. Edelweiss hotel is lovely — want to come back just to spend a night here!

Nice little hike up the side of the mountain. Shop/hotel owner was very kind once we got the the hotel. Great views of the city of Zermatt. Very few people. Would recommend going a bit farther on trail to see even more views of the mountain and river with flowing water. Bridge has been fixed so no worries.

Nice hike inspired by the view of the little Edelweiss hotel from a coffee shop in Zermatt. Started from the coffee shop and headed up. A local told me the bridge on this route was destroyed a week ago, after heavy rains, but a new one was put in recently. Passed some folks returning from there overnight and others hiking up including a 90 year old man who climbed the Matterhorn in his youth and wanted to return to the hut where his climb started (for his birthday!). Got lucky on top, the clouds parted and I got a few pix. Had a fizzy apple juice and returned to town. Perfecto!

Beautiful. Lots of wooded areas and uphill to a nice surprise at the top. Perfect after hiking longer higher elevations on prior days
