Nordic Région Gibloux - Blue trail
Located on the south face of the Gibloux, our snowshoe trails offer an idyllic setting in winter. Between peat bogs, pastures and forests, you might think you are in Lapland. The view of the Moléson and the Pre-Alps is there to remind us that we are in Gruyère. Various starting points are accessible by car from Riaz, Marsens, Sorens (TPF Bus) and Maules.
In the middle of snow-covered fir trees, discover the Blue Trail, which offers a slight difference in altitude in a preserved setting.
From the Chalet-Neuf buvette, turn left and walk along the clearing that appears in front of you. Cross the edge of the forest, walk about 10 m. up to the crossroads and then follow the signpost B that goes to your left. Stroll between the snow-covered fir trees to reach point B called "Prâ Boû". Follow the path through the forest until you see a clearing. The hike continues to point C "Devin Dessus". A 250-metre descent into the heart of the forest takes you to the point H known as "Joux de Pra Filieux". Continue your walk for 600 m. through a preserved forest to reach point G. Go to your left following signpost A, and walk a few more minutes in the forest. Once you reach the edge, you will discover the cross-country ski trails that occupy the clearing that opens in front of you. You can see Chalet-Neuf in the distance, which marks the end of your hike. Enjoy these last moments by admiring this winter landscape while walking along the clearing.
