This trail, created with the help of the Espace Mont Blanc, is made up of 4 different routes, which take from 1 to 3 hours to complete and are perfect for both experienced hikers and for amateur walkers out for a Sunday stroll.
"Le sentier à tire d'ailes" leads to one of the most important ornithological sites in the Alps. From August to October, thousands of passerine (songbirds) and predatory birds fly through this pass, putting on a spectacular aerial ballet as they wing their way to warmer climes.
"Le sentier nature" explores the rich diversity of flora and fauna and the spectacular geology of this part of the Alps.
"Le sentier rural" takes you on a trip back in time. As you learn about water-run sawmills, chalets and the people who lived here, you will experience life as it was in the old days on the plateau of Barme.
