Matterhorn Glacier trail

Hi, my wife and I (in our 60's), plan a hike on the Matterhorn Glacier Trail starting from Trockener Steg station and ending at Swarzsee station. I understand that this trial is suitable for families with children but how safe is this for us in our 60's. From other websites I learnt that the trail is mostly a gradual descent.
Would you have any details on suitability for us please?

Thanks so very much

It should be easy if you are in moderate good health - I have hiked up half of it and then went on to Hornehutt , and THAT turn off you should not take lol , but if you simply go between the two stations it’s a nice walk .
