My personal recommendation would be to take the short train ride to Brig. There is plenty of local hiking you can do nearby especially within the Aletsch region comprising the three villages of Riederalp, Bettmeralp and Fiescheralp. I was in Bettmeralp recently. The Swiss Travel Pass will get you as far as Bettmeralp, a charming mountain village. From Bettmeralp you can ride the cable car for half-price to Bettmerhorn to view the Aletsch Glacier. From this point, you can hike to Riederalp, Fiescheralp or Eggishorn. Or you can hike down to the Bettmersee (small lake at Bettmeralp). There is a tourist information centre in Brig where you can find more details about hiking in the area.
Hope this gives you more options to add to your trip.
