From Frinvillier you can choose between two main routes up to the Chasseral. The first leads via the Geissrücken straight up to the summit. The second, rather shorter, goes up to the top via Orvin and Les Prés d'Orvin. Both routes are marked all the way with the yellow and red signs of the Jura Mountain Trail.
