The peak of Moléson rises proud and mighty to the sky, as if it were standing guard over the entire valley. The theme hike begins at the foot of the giant, in the center of the village named after the mountain. This hike takes a close look at the mysteries of cheese making. There are two hiking alternatives to choose from. One hike takes you through les Reybes (described here), the other through la Provêta. The tour begins at information panel 10 (Tafel 10), which belongs to the the cheese-dairy Fromagerie d'alpage de Moléson-Village. The route leads past panels 11 through 20, down to Pringy, and ends at the Maison du Gruyère (Tafel 1 / panel 1). Authentic alpine huts and magnificent forests are passed en route.
