ITINERARY
The hike starts near the car park next to the cinema/Maison du Parc. Follow the signs towards Villard Reymond. This is where the Chemin du facteur starts.
When you arrive at Le Merlon, DO NOT cross the torrent but stay on the same path. On the dam, go down the tyre stairs and continue along the path on the left. This is where the real climb begins. All the way up, follow the signs to Villard Reymond and the yellow marks on the trees.

Arriving at the Col de Solude, enjoy the stunning views before descending to the village of Villard Reymond.

For the return journey, turn back to the Col de Solude and from there continue towards the Col de St Jean. On arrival at the Col de St Jean you can start the descent directly or go up to the Pré Gentil (15 minutes) to enjoy a superb 360 degree view.
