Tour description

Start at the Pont de la Cascade (before the Vieux Gîte) and take the narrow track. Then turn right on to the forest path. Just before the La Cuva bridge, turn left towards Les Vuipays d'En Bas, then walk up into the fields until you reach the Buvette du Vuipay. From there, keep to the left when climbing to the top of the rise. Take a few moments to catch your breath and to enjoy the panoramic view before walking back down to La Cuva, passing on your way the Chalet du Petit Mology. Continue along the forest path which will take you back to La Cuva route.

Option: Parcours des caquelons - Le Vuipay. Possibility to stop off for something to eat or drink at the Buvette du Vuipay every weekend from January. Open until dusk or when booked in advance (a minimum of 15). If you have an urge to satisfy your need for speed, rent a bobsleigh at the Buvette du Vuipay day or night – a sure-fired way to finish your descent in record time!


Can also be taken at night thanks to reflective signposting along the route.
