On the Moos-Trail, every bike rider experiences a major adventure in the bike paradise of Zermatt – Matterhorn. The super soft tour from the hamlet of Furi to Zermatt is ideal for taking excellent advantage of gravity. Chainless too!

You can reach the Moos Trail by travelling through Zermatt to Winkelmatten on the Moostrasse to the hamlet of Furi (signalized from the train station square) or with the Matterhorn-Express up to Furi.

Before starting at the Restaurant Alm in Schweigmatten, the rider glances briefly into the valley towards Zermatt. You will soon be there!

Over 1.3 km with an average gradient of 7.5%, one measures 95 m of altitude on this Flow Country Trail. This is a perfect route to test whether it is possible to get down to the valley to Moos at the end of the trail, without even turning the pedals once. Occasionally, the rider catches a glance at a Stadel, the forest or a gondola, which rushes past just above his head.

The Moos Trail is equally suited for beginners as well as for experts and everyone in between.

Author’s recommendation

It is best to ride this trail several times after each other and test your sense of balance. On the third trip, a stop at the Gorner gorge is worthwhile.

Zermatt is also the start and finish point for the world-famous Glacier Express panoramic train journey (Zermatt to St. Moritz or Davos).

Zermatt is car-free. Private vehicles are permitted only as far as Täsch (5 km before Zermatt). The Täsch–Zermatt road is closed to the public.

 

Onward travel to Zermatt is either by private taxi or shuttle train. Trains depart every 20 minutes; the journey takes about 12 minutes, and ends at the Bahnhofplatz in Zermatt.

Parking

Täsch has car parks with both covered and open-air parking – e.g. at the Matterhorn Terminal or privately operated facilities.
