Graechen and Depart from the Mattertal

We chose to start the Tour of the Matterhorn not from Zermatt, but from St. Niklaus at the head of the Matterhorn Valley.  We stayed in the town of Graechen the night before the hike.

 From Graechen on the east side of the valley you can look across to where the Tour of Matterhorn hike goes on the west side of the valley.

Is that the actual trail visible in the upper left of the third-last image?
