    Matterhorn, Hike to the top!

    by webdd Written Jun 14, 2005

    Eurail's don't cover the entire way to Zermatt but if you can get to the town, you can *almost* hike to the top of the Matterhorn. Start out in the valley of Zermatt, there's a great youth hostel there. Drop your stuff off, reserve a room and get ready to hike all day. I found a trail in the valley and stuck to it all the way to the climbers cabin close to the very top of the mountain. The trail is intense. I hiked all day, started at the very bottom early in the morning and climbed to the cabin and I was back down by night. I went in the summer and experienced a little snow, but nothing too bad. The trail stops at some points and you will have to use the provided rope. Like I said, it is an intense hike.

    Matterhorn!
