Description

Fancy a walk close to the village centre? This looping route between river and forest will keep you cool and calm on hot summer days.
This short loop starts from the Plan du Moulin bridge and is perfect for an introductory family hike. Between forest and pretty views over Saint Sorlin d'Arves and Saint Jean d'Arves, you will then follow the Arvan, the emblematic river of the Arves valley, before returning to the atmosphere of summer afternoons at the Plan du Moulin leisure area.

Guidebook with maps/step-by-step

From the Plan du Moulin (500 metres below the Tourist Office, follow "Aire de jeux"), pass the point leading to the tennis/leisure centre and walk along the mountain side of the football pitch on the right. Follow the path (steep for 200 m) that zig-zags up the side of the Crêt d'Ornon. Once you reach the flat, there is a fine panoramic view of the village and the hamlet of Les Vachers. Follow the path to the left, which climbs slightly to the east through the undergrowth. You can leave the balcony path at Malcrozet (1-hour loop), or further on at Cluny (1.5-hour loop), or even further on at La Curiaz (2-hour loop). Return along the D926 road or by the same route.
