Begin the tour in Môtiers and simply follow the yellow signs towards Mt Chasseron. Môtiers once sheltered poet-philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau. The area, however, is even better known for the absinthe that is brewed in this region. Once in the Poëta Raisse one understands why this region is considered mystical by some. Once on top of the mountain, the sweeping views will impress hikers. See Lake Neuchatel, then the Alps and to the North, the Jura mountains. Once the summit has been reached, it is all downhill. The yellow-red signs will point the way to the watch-making village of Ste-Croix.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
