Description

Nice trek with a wonderful view on the lake and the Mont Blanc !

This trek will take you through the "Grandes Baraques" pastures to this tiny lake after 2h30 climbing. The view is great on the Mont Blanc. If you have energy left, you can climb up to the summit of "la Croix Bozon", the view there is even nicer !

Guidebook with maps/step-by-step

From the Pont Romano in Nancroix (1,430 m) or the Pont Baudin (car park)
Go to the site of the mine palace (ruin of the foundry) or 200 m downstream towards the salt water. Take the path that climbs to the "montagne de l'Arc", also known as "les grandes baraques" (1,992 m). Wide laces in the forest, then clearings, then mountain pasture. Cross the few houses and continue west. A tough climb in the sun, then a promontory with sinkholes (2,247 m). We go back down to the small lake (2,166 m) and then take the rather steep path downstream from this lake (path known as "des Charentais") which leads back to the Pont romano - Nancroix.
This loop can be done in the other direction!

Difficulties: difficult. Crossing of torrents. Steep sections on the way down.
