    Gornergrat Zermatt
    Description

    Gornergrat is a tourist magnet. The view of the Matterhorn is as phenomenal as the singletrail descent over the Riffelalp to Zermatt.

    The best way to get to the Gornergrat is to take the rack-railway – joining countless tourists who cannot imagine that riding a bike up there could be possible. From the crowded observation platform at the famous mountain top station, follow a rocky and steep, but well-rideable trail until you reach the first junction. From here, take the trail leading to Riffelsee. This one starts out technically demanding, but it gets more and more flowing as it continues. The panorama up here is unique, facing the monolithic and mighty Matterhorn. The trail then passes the Riffelsee until you have to turn left in order to get to Riffelalp. For a short section, the trail gets very steep and technical, only to become more flowing after. At Hotel Riffelalp, follow the railroad tracks to Riffelalp station where you choose the trail leading to Findelbach station. The following section is one of Zermatt‘s highlights, as the trail winds down with lots of flow through a dense larch forest. After the Findelbach station, follow the signalled mountain biking route to get back to Zermatt. Please ride responsibly, as the entire route and especially the section from Riffelalp to Zermatt is usually crowded with hikers.

    Caution: Please ride responsibly, as the entire route and especially the section from Riffelalp to Zermatt is usually crowded with hikers.
