The bike route up from Yverdon-les-Bains to the Chasseron is technically quite simple, but it's tiring on the legs. The climb up from Baulmes to Ste-Croix is strenuous enough, and it gets even tougher on the final climb up to the summit. Your reward is the view described above and the wonderful downhill section to Grandson. First across meadows, then through woodland and finally along wide paths, the route leads down in several stages back to Lake Neuchâtel.
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.
