Description

This hike takes you to the hamlet of Courchons (1350 m), whose school still had 20 pupils at the beginning of the last century. The village is mostly in ruins, and pastoralism is the main activity in the area.

Head for the N202 road. Turn left and follow it south to the Hôtel du Lac et Forêt.
Turn right onto the Courchons trail. After 500 m, reach the intersection with the Col des Robines path. Continue up the track. After several bends, take the access road to the Rouchas house.
Leave the Courchons track and follow this path past the houses. Take the path to a small valley and continue through undergrowth, with a succession of steep sections and flats, until you reach a pass. Climb westwards towards the ridge and the ruins of the old village of Courchons. Pass the chapel and continue down to the plateau, leaving a track to the right and passing the bread oven. Opposite the Granges building, take the right-hand track and climb slightly to the oratory. On the other side, go down the path and cross the track several times. After 1 km, leave the path towards Moriez and continue on the track. After two short cuts, reach the pass.
Follow the path, keeping to the right, to return to the same path as at the start of the hike.
