After Furi, the route climbs slightly through the forest, past the Zmutt reservoir to Stafelalp. It’s a really good opportunity to take in the imposing power of the north face of the Matterhorn.

After Stafelalp, the gravel path heads even closer to the Matterhorn and is both steep and flat in places. It continues like this until you reach Schwarzsee.
