Description

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.
