From Oz station to Villard Reculas

A walk which affords stunning views of the Eau d’Olle valley and the Belledonne chain. This is a long but not technically challenging footpath which will enable you to discover different environments (forests, mountain pastures) and different types of vegetation (blueberries, rhododendrons...). A very pleasant walk on a hot day!
