Snowshoe trail - Pas de Morgins

  • Itinéraire Pas de Morgins


This very easy route, accessible to all, will take you from Châtel through the forest to Morgins Lake in Switzerland.
From the centre of Châtel, head towards Lac de Vonnes, where the path starts at the car park for the inter-domain link.

You can get there by taking the line 4 shuttle bus and getting off at the "Gabelou" stop.

From the signpost opposite the car park entrance, follow the path up to the Col de Morgins.

You are now on the border with Switzerland, and you can go as far as the lake of the same name just after the pass. The view opens out onto the Dents du Midi in Switzerland, dominated by the Haute Cime (3,257m).

If it's not covered in snow, the border marker at the pass is very interesting, with carved shields on either side (Swiss and Duke of Savoy).
Return by the same route or by taking the shuttle bus.

Alternative route: From Lac de Vonnes, walk alongside the lake and then, at the end of the lake, follow the small road leading to the start of the Vonnes link. Cross the road over the footbridge to reach the car park on the left.
