Guidebooks & Map Recommendations:
Kev Reynolds Alpine Pass Route: East to West Across Switzerland (Cicerone Guides: 3rd Edition 2010) is an invaluable resource for self guided trekkers on the Alpine Pass Route. In addition to information about the trail, Mr. Reynolds includes valuable tips about costs, natural history, distances, safety tips, and other miscellaneous information. In 2007, in addition to the Cicerone guide we used Lonely Planet's: Walking in Switzerland, which also has detailed information about the trail, history of Switzerland, architecture, and food/lodging options however the last edition was published in 2001 so it's outdated as sections of the trails have changed within the past several years as has costs, & food/lodging options.
