This route is suitable for experienced mountain bikers, as the single-track path winds its way down some steep slopes and includes a few serpentines. It is one of the most difficult routes in the destination Zermatt – Matterhorn. If you are brave enough to take your eyes off the trail for a second, you’ll see some stunning views.
Take the Gornergrat Bahn up to the Gornergrat. Before heading off on the bike trail, take in the breathtaking views of the Gorner Glacier, the Matterhorn and the Alpine panorama.
First, the gravel path goes down to the Gornergratsee. The single trail fun starts at this point. Initially, it’s quite flowy, but you soon reach rocky terrain with some slow tech sections. Some parts are exposed so you need to be careful. Experienced bikers will absolutely love this single trail.
You soon reach the Mountain Lodge Ze Seewjinu and the bike trail then becomes less technical. At the Mountain Lodge, the trail heads left towards Lauberen. This section is very flowy again with some technical sections and tree roots.
We recommend only riding this section when the weather is dry.
The trail eventually reaches Findelbach station and then Moosstrasse. From there, you can either go directly back to Zermatt or join the Moos Trail.
As the single trail is on a north-facing slope, the snow remains on the ground for a long time. This bike trail is therefore best ridden in late summer (from the end of July).
At Findelbach, you can cross the river and stop off in Findeln. If you want to stop earlier, there is also the option of the Mountain Lodge Ze Seewjinu.
Tip: “Be searchable”. Equip yourself with an additional RECCO rescue reflector*. Whether summer or winter. Available in our Online-Shop or our information desk. *The additional reflector does not replace an avalanche beacon.
