High Point

Start from Zermatt Town strait up to Sunegga. It's a steep and steady climb on gravel roads which leads you through a scenic landscape up to Riffelberg. From there you will follow a rather difficult technical downhill trail down to Riffelalp. Follow the hiking trails for a couple hundred meters before you hit the train station. From there you'll find the trailhead to a flow trail almost down to Furi. At the bottom, turn right and ride the only built bike trail called Kate Moos down to Zermatt.
