Description

The forest is an exceptional environment and throughout this walk, you will have an opportunity to explore the north side of the valley, enjoying extraordinary views of Mont Blanc and the Beaufortain massif.
Hikers, you are going to follow a trail that goes through an environment where man has intervened in different ways resulting in an alternance of developed sites and forests. There are 9 information boards on different themes along the way:
* Les Bâches stream: controlling erosion
* the reach where the flow of free water is controlled
* silviculture or the art of cultivating the forest
* the sentinels of the forest
* panorama: the mountains that surround us
* a brief history of the resort
* the evolution of the landscape
* trees in the mountains
* the boundaries of the forest

We leave you to discover them …
