Trail Chavants to Col de la Forclaz via Charousse

A pass situated in the middle of a forest of spruce. This route was used by the
Romans (1st century) to link the Saint-Gervais and Chamonix valleys.
On the Tour du Mont-Blanc trail.

At the top of the village, turn right along the road to la Cote des Chavants. Turn left up the path to the Granges des Chavants (1 256 m) 0 h 40. On the left a path goes off to the Col de Voza. Turn right and take a footpath which crosses several gullies and plunges into the forest (Vaudagne reservoir). At a bend, (1 282 m), the path joins the forest track coming from Vaudagne which climbs fairly steeply up to the col.

Tours : It is possible to drop down to Vaudagne via Mont-Borrel and les
Bouchards, one section of this path being a GRP variation. • It is also worthwhile
returning via the village of Vieux Servoz and Servoz taking the GRP alternative
route via Montcoutant and le Chatelard on the way down.

Others itineraries available from Vaudagne or Le Prarion.
