Description

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.

Turnoff under the Restaurant Alm. Afterwards ride down the trail to Moos and back to the Furi street. 
We recommend:
  • Bike in excellent working order
  • Helmet, gloves and bell
  • Clothing suitable for the weather (always carry a waterproof)
  • Food and drink
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.
  • Always wear gloves and a helmet.
  • Use marked bike trails and routes only, and observe all signposting. Please close gates after passing through.
  • Please be considerate to walkers and to plants and animals. As a rule, walkers have priority.
  • When planning, take into account participants’ fitness level and ability: some routes lead above 3,000 metres.
  • All riding is at one’s own risk.
