Scale the Bec Rouge and enjoy unhindered views of the valley. Start: the old schoolhouse in Le Châtelard. Competent hikers.
Go through Le Châtelard village. Go past the former school and head towards Le Vaz. When you get to Le Vaz, head towards La Roche up the forest trail. Follow the signs for La Roche. After the junction, go left and follow the trail that winds up through the forest, getting steeper and steeper as you climb. When you get to the clearing at La Roche, follow the path that passes behind the chalet and goes steeply up in the forest. At the next junction, turn left. Once you come out into the meadow, keep going up until you reach the sign saying “Alt. 2086m”, then head down the trail on your right. Cross the alpine meadows and go past the rocks which are dotted around the final ascent. Follow the trail up to the cross at the top of the Bec Rouge. Follow the same route to get back down to Le Vaz and Le Châtelard.
