<<"We will be staying in Grindelwald from October 3 through October 8 to hike. Some of the day hikes we'd like to do include the following below.Will these trails be accessible during our stay ?">> Hi Elizabeth-
Those are good questions, and Arno or Annika can give you a better sense of trail conditions at that time than I. I'd be wondering myself.
In general, below 2000 meters, the trails are likely to be open. But, there can be a lot of snow by then, or (more likely) little or none.
Some of the hikes you list are quite long for day hikes, and include as much as 1,000 meter elevation changes, (or more, for Grindelwald to Schynige Platte) and may be difficult for a day hike unless you are experienced at alpine hiking with substantial altitude changes and high altitudes.
This map can help you with the lay of the land.
