A trail offering a rolling first section followed by a succession of ascents and descents along a high traversing path. This "short" circuit is ideal for training or an introduction to the techniques of trail-running.
Departing from the station at Vallorcines, join the signpost 156, near the level crossing.
This circuit begins gently with a flattish ascent on path and then road. At Les Mayens the "difficulties" begin. The ascent which follows must be approached with care, because, although enjoyable, it steepens continuously to the summit. In the middle of the Larch forest, the way out is via a succession of descents and ascents on a high traversing path. After a section at the foot of a climbing rock and in the middle of the hamlet of Les Parts, comes the final push up the forest track. Welcome descent into Vallorcine is made along a good footpath in the middle of a forest.
