Hint

Intro

A hike downstream in the heart of La Gruyère, which through openings in the undergrowth offers unrivalled views of the Alpine foothills and creeks filled with turquoise water! It's a real pleasure to discover the flora and fauna and heritage of La Gruyère.

Description

Main access to the 3 stages, which are hilly in places, from the village of Corbières to the bridge over the River Sarine. 51 km of trails provide a feast for the eyes and the taste buds. There are many opportunities for refreshments, swimming and water sports near the route.

First stage on a circular trail, starting in the forest with a fairly steep climb. Culinary delights in Botterens with its goat's cheese, then a sweet break at the Maison Cailler in Broc. The legendary Moléson is not far off. Return in the direction of Corbières along a quiet footpath.

Second stage rich in history: Vuippens the manor house with its castle and gardens, Ogoz Island with its medieval ruins. At the water's edge hikers can swim, enjoy water sports or indulge in culinary delights, before heading to Rossens across the top of the cliffs that jut out over the lake.

From Rossens, cross the 320 metres of dam between the lake and the chasm. Care is required when rejoining the footpath leading to Pont-la-Ville. The steep path is compensated by a magnificent view of the lake and the Alpine foothills. Descend toward La Roche port, return via Hauteville, its farms and poyas (facades decorated with pictures of cattle being driven to and from the Alpine pastures), then to Corbières and its castle.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
