Hi Vik, thanks for joining us!
You seem to be a bit confused about the exact pass name. I think you're referring to the Swiss Travel Pass, right? The Swiss Pass is something different (for Swiss residents only), and the Golden Pass is a train route.
Assuming it's the Swiss Travel Pass you have in mind: all details are at our Swiss Travel Page, including a section on validity. As you'll see, all regular train, bus and boat rides within Switzerland are fully covered. Mountain trips like Titlis and Jungfraujoch are discounted. When heading for the Black Forest, the pass will allow free traveling up to the Swiss/German border, but it's not valid for the German section of this trip. By the way, this combined Rhine Falls and Black Forest tour from Zurich may interest you: www.viator.com/tours/B lack-Forest-and-Rhine-Falls-Day-Trip-from-Zurich.
Whether a Swiss Travel Pass is the best choice, depends on the exact details of your itinerary and on personal preferences. If you like the ease of ticketless traveling, a 4 day Swiss Travel Pass plus a Zurich Card is a good option. Price wise, you may compare this to the Swiss Half Fare Card as explained on our "How to choose" page. For both passes, please consult the pages I linked to for validity overviews and purchase options.
