Hi Sierra -
Welcome to my Swiss Alps:
Take a look here:
follow the links beyond the ones shown, and you learn a lot.
This may be useful:
In late October, the high Alps are chancy. Some trails may be open, others, snowed in.
Tourist facilities up there are closing for break before the winter season. Some are open.
You can get some access by expensive excursion trains, for example to the Jungfraujoch, but the more useful cableways stop on about October 23rd.
What are your exact travel dates?
Lots of good fall hiking at lower elevations, however.
Altitude is everything. Controls the weather.
Apart from walking around with a pack on your back, do you have specific interests?
