LE TRAIL DU LAC DU RETOUR 22 KM  

The 22km “Trail du Lac du Retour” itinerary, with a 1,450m uphill climb, is a demanding route that runs between an altitude of 1,500m and 2,450m.

Starting in La Rosière, participants must climb up to the Roc Noir, where they can look down over the Petit Saint-Bernard pass and Mont Blanc from the mountain ridge.

Some of La Rosière’s most emblematic landmarks are dotted around the route: Fort de la Redoute Ruinée, Combe du Torrent des Moulins, Lac du Retour (alt.: 2,400m), plus the traditional villages of Le Vaz and Le Châtelard villages at alt. 1,500m.

LA MOULINETTE 15 KM

A lovely little route that is run mainly on single-track paths.

The 15mk “La Moulinette” route has an uphill climb of 800m. It is an accessible trail along Alpine footpaths that offers stunning panoramic views! Participants climb up to the Roc Noir ridge for plunging views over Mont Blanc and the Petit Saint-Bernard pass.
