Snowshoe trail - Les Québales

  • Itinéraire Raquettes Québales


Itinary follow signs for Villapeyron for around 2km. At the junction at Villapeyron bridge, the starting point for the trail is at the end of the small road in front of you. You can left your car at the Linga's car park at 50 meters.
The path enters the woods, crosses a stream and heads up towards another track which cuts across it. Continue up the rather steep, winding path and take the tunring off it at the shrine. Keep to the uphill bends. Turn right onto this broad track which leads up to Les Boudîmes alpine pasture.
Continue along this path through the pasture unitl you reach a small plateau just behind the electricity pylon. Th path rises gently through the pasture and occasionally through the forest. The view gradually opens up as you climb. Behind you the Dents du Midi (3,257l /10,686ft) should be visible in fine weather.
Once you reach Les Québales-bas, ignore the left-hand path that leads into the forest and take the one which will take you to the highest point of this trail, Les Québales.
You're now in the Mont de Grange hunting reserve and with a little bit of patience, if you're quiet, you may see some chamois!
Return by the same route as the area is in an avalanche zone and it may be dangerous to proceed further.
