I walked the Einhornmarsch in 2002 and enjoyed is thoroughly despite constant rain. The walking routes were through forest and meadow on wide, well-drained ski trails that could allow people to walk 2-3 abreast in both directions. The views of the Alps would have been better without the overcast, but it still was a wonderful walk I would attend again.
