6.1 Return by the road


Not for the faint of heart. This is a long, magnificently scenic trail that traverses several forests and follows a ridgeline, offering incredible views of Champoussin and the Rhone Valley.

The trail leaves from the Frâchette covered picnic area on the road to Champoussin.
Take the path along the ridgeline towards the Croix de l’Aiguille until you get to the Gouille aux Sangliers.
At the intersection, turn left and walk down through the forest to a place called Pétis. From here, walk uphill, along the edge of the Plagnois Forest until you reach the road.
On leaving the forest, you can take option ‘6 by road’ and return to Frâchette (approx. 40 min).
