  • This Franco-Swiss forest trail is suitable for experienced hikers.

  • The path starts on the other side of the road (cross with care) opposite Lac de Morgins, in the forest on a slight downhill slope.
    At the first exit from the forest, continue along the forest track on your right to begin the fairly steep ascent to Sur le Bord.

    After several hairpin bends, the path passes close to the Sur le Bord mountain chalet before reaching the highest point a few hundred metres further on.

    After admiring the view, you can retrace your steps back to the starting...

    Safety and rules of good practice:

    - All routes are undertaken at the hiker's own risk, as they are not supervised.
    - Before setting off, make sure you are aware of the weather conditions and the risk of avalanches, and remember to bring warm, waterproof clothing. Mountain weather changes very quickly. A high avalanche risk means that trails are closed.
    - Choose a route suited to your level and physical condition.
    - Follow the signposting instructions.
    - Do not stray from the marked routes.
    - Tell someone close to you about your outing and the route you have chosen.
    - Never hike alone.
    - Don't leave too late in the afternoon to make sure you're back before dark.
    - Do not use the cross-country or downhill ski runs. Crossing the pistes is only permitted on marked crossings.
    - Take plenty of food and water with you. Mountain sports require a lot of energy. Mountain inns and high-altitude restaurants exist on certain routes.
