Hiking Boucle sur le Bord

  • Vue sur le calme Lac de la Mouille, lac en altitude au milieu de la forêt


During the ascent to the chalet of Sur le Bord, a beautiful forest of spruces offers itself to you. This conifer, too often confused with its cousin the fir, is essential to the ecosystem of the subalpine layer.
It provides a pantry for squirrels and birds and shelters many nests. Its wood is used for the production of carpentry and joinery parts.

The start of the walk begins with a tour of Lake Vonnes to the fishing guardian's chalet and then slightly uphill towards the departmental road that you cross and take the path leading to Pas de Morgins.
At the pass, cross the departmental road again and take the path leading to the picnic area. Breathtaking view of the Lac de Vonnes.
Take the rising forest track, the view then opens onto the upper Abondance valley (the Linga and the Essert waterfall).
Once at the Sur le Bord chalet, the route crosses a spruce forest. After a short descent, you arrive at Lac de la Mouille, the ideal setting for a picnic. Take the road again, going down towards the chalets of Conche and after a few bends, you arrive at point 1395m where you take on the left the path plunging in the direction of Châtel. Arriving above the cable car, take the track leading to Lac de Vonnes.
OpeningsFrom 01/05 to 31/10.
