Hi! I need some tips on the accessible easy/moderate hiking trails from Zermatt to get up close to Matterhorn on dates Oct. 28-31, 2017. I have read something about 5-Lakes Trail but it states it's only until oct. 15. Are there any options to get to one of the lakes close to Matterhorn offering a panoramic view of Matterhorn? Any other suggestions to explore Matterhorn by railway/gondola ride combined with easy/moderate hiking (max. 5 hours duration)on the said dates? And what about weather issues in late Oct.? How is it usually there at ths time?We want as a family of 3 with a 9-year old child to make our first ever trip to Zermatt to have a spectacular Matterhorn experience not just with the mountain rides but also combined with hiking but until now, I don't have any idea yet how to make both possible on these dates oct. 28-31, 2017. I would appreciate any help from you. Thanks in advance!
