A pretty loop starting from Morgins or Champoussin, passing over the Portes du Soleil pass and numerous mountain pasture restaurants.
Visitor NotificationDue to work on the new Foilleuse gondola lift, a deviation is proposed via the Vallon de They. Follow the alp road (route de Chésery) as far as the étang de Sassex, then at the next crossroads, turn left (red "bike" sticker on the signpost to Madzé), go through the barrier and start climbing. At the fork in the road, head briefly in the direction of Tovassière then to the left to join the path that runs above the usual route to Madzé.
Designed on the side of a mountain on a 4×4 road, its unevenness and its point of views will make your experience go up a notch.
From Madzé, join the Route du Jorat which climbs up to the Gite d’alpage de La Chaux, then continue flat in the direction of Les Bochasses as far as the village of Champoussin. Above the Auberge Chez Gaby 1670, the path climbs gently up to Vaillime above Les Crosets. Then begins the steeper ascent to the Col des Portes du Soleil, the highest point (1950m) on your itinerary. Enjoy the view before descending to the Buvette de Tovassière and Morgins.
And if the need arises, several recharging stations are available all along the circuit in order to recharge the batteries of your bikes and enjoy a gourmet break!
Best time of year
