Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade describes the potential consequences of falling or slipping off the path.
Low Exposure: The path is on completely flat land and potential injury is limited to falling over.
Medium Exposure: The trail contains some obstacles such as outcroppings and rock which could cause injury.
High Exposure: Some trail sections have exposed ledges or steep ascents/descents where falling could cause serious injury.
Extreme Exposure: Some trail sections are extreme exposed where falling will almost certainly result in serious injury or death.
A gentle walk up from the village just north of Zermatt; Täsch.
The walk meanders a little, with nothing too steep, through the forest to the right of the train line as it heads up to Zermatt, and pops out onto the local sheep and goat pasture land affording the first views of Zermatt.
You continue past the heliport and train station and finish just beyond, perfect for a stop at one of the local cafes.
