Spectacular trails across and along gorges alternate with fantastic high-altitude routes. This is certainly the case on the tour from the monastery village of St Maurice to the Torrent de Saint Barthélémy. After getting through the 12 kilometre climb to the pretty village of Mex, you then pass through the Mauvoisin gorges before descending once more to the Rhône Valley along winding trails.
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.
