  • A beautiful and challenging hike, typical of Chartreuse, between forests and limestone. In spring, you can meet a lot of orchids along the way.

  • (1) Take the bridge in front of the church of Saint-Pierre-d’Entremont Savoy and turn left on a path that goes up and cuts the bends of a housing estate. Follow the yellow signs. The path meets a forest track, which you will leave soon to take the path (2) on the right, which goes up to the ruins of «Sous La Roche».

At the ruins, cut a track to go up on a very steep path to reach the top of the Roche Veyrand. The way up is difficult, and takes 3 to 4 hours (cables, aerial passages… you must be careful at all times). At the end, it is easier.
    (3) To reach the top and enjoy the view, you will have to go back and forth.
    Way down:
    (4) Come back on yourself and follow the path on the left to La Tournette. It goes down in the forest, then meets a forest track. Leave this track quickly to take a small path on your right. At the exit of the forest, walk along the ruins and cross a field to join the barns of La Tournette.
    (5) At the ruins, turn right at the basin and after 5 minutes, take right to the hamlet of la Fracette.
    (6) Follow the small road which brings you back to Saint-Pierre-d’Entremont.
