POINTS OF INTEREST:
- Crossing pastures with herds of beautiful Abondances cows or Tarines whose production of milk is used for the manufacture of Reblochon and to a lesser extent Beaufort.
- Beside the alpine farms a small building, the "fredier", built on a stream, allowed to keep cool the milking evening until the collection by the cooperative.
- The Arpelières trail, created in a mountain wetland, a fragile natural area. Discover the largest sphagnum peat bog in the Alps and its unique ecosystem. Since 2013 the site benefits from the classification in Regional Nature Reserve.
