Hiking -- to see some fall colors

I'm interested in hiking this weekend.
I was hoping to see some fall colors

I live in Zurich,
Anyone have recommendations on hiking / fall color viewing?

I have a car and can transport myself to a good hiking trail

Specifics
* I'm fit, and can hike a long time
* I'm interested in a hike no longer then 3 or 4 hours
* My main interest is seeing the beautiful countryside / fall colors / lakes.....

Thanks

Been in the Vaud Alps all week- Leysin and les Diablerets, and the colours have been amazing and the views and light so bright and clear. Stunning. Sadly, pouring with rain now- but it seems Sunday will be good again.

Re: Hiking -- to see some fall colors

I did a very nice circular hike from Fischingen a couple of years ago in mid-October, the autumn colours were really good.

Even better for the colours, this hike over the Schnebelhorn. It's longer than what you are looking for, but could easily be shortened by not including the Hörnli.

Walk around Klontalersee - nice lake, nice forest, nice mountains.

May be mostly in shade though at this time of year.

It may be a bit far, but Aletschwald is certainly a lovely sight at this time of year:
