Starting from Zermatt, follow one of the Edelweissweg or Höhbalmen marked trails. The route begins with a demanding ascent through the gorge to Trift. After this point, continue on a slope that gradually becomes gentler as you approach Höhbalmen and look out over the Matterhorn to the other side of the valley. Continue on a fairly smooth single track that runs along the hillside, then go down along the Arbenbach waterfalls before turning in the direction of Zmutt. When going through this small village, take the path overlooking the valley to make your way back to Zermatt. Cross green pastures and meander through larch forests before reaching the village of Zermatt.
