Interpretive panels, dotted along this discovery trail, provide a wealth of information on the various historic and religious (chapels) buildings you will encounter during your walk. They also feature some stories and legends about the picturesque villages nestled in the Intyamon valley.
From Montbovon train station, head towards the village and follow the signs for «Sciernes d’Albeuve». Along the way, you will cross the 17th century Hongrin stone bridge. The trail will also take you through the villages of the Intyamon valley and provide you with the perfect opportunity to admire the Vanils, Dents de Broc, Chamois and Bourgoz mountain ranges.
To reach Gruyères, follow the «Charrière aux Morts» path which will take you to the very heart of this picturesque medieval town (in the Middle Ages, this path was used to carry the dead of the parish to Gruyères for burial). The train station is at the bottom of the hill in Pringy.

Alternative E: Two possible starting points: Montbovon or Gruyères.
