Les Colombettes - Snowshoe trail
You leave for a circuit of about 1h30 through the pastures and forests surrounding Les Colombettes. Without any particular difficulties, this trail is ideal for a family outing. In addition, to keep you entertained, its creator guides you along the way with panels featuring messages that combine recommendations and humour.
The itinerary begins with a slight descent and a walk through a forest. Then, you turn left and start the main ascent of this route that runs along the same forest. The higher you go, the more the view of the plain and the Castle of Vaulruz emerges. This trail takes you to the Chalet des Colombettes at an altitude of 982 m.
Then, you continue your walk through the fields to reach the highest point of the route (1010 m.). After crossing another wood, admire the sumptuous panorama composed of several mythical peaks of the region, including those of La Berra (1719 m.), Le Gros Brun (2104 m.) and La Dent de Vounetse (1812 m.).
After enjoying the view, you turn slightly to the left and start the final descent that leads you directly to the starting point and "Ô Colombettes", this mythical restaurant operated by people with disabilities and run by professionals in the catering industry. Take a last look before finishing your hike and admire the Dent de Broc (1829 m.) which appears on your right between the trees of a nearby forest.
