Les Mandes circuit

at Val-Cenis

Loop
  • A beautifully varied trail on the edge of fields and a forest of pine and spruce. Plenty of sunshine and a panoramic view over the villages of Val Cenis.

  • Walk up the street that crosses the Canton district, turn left onto a farm track and then right onto a path. At the intersection, take the righthand track and continue straight ahead. You'll cross a valley before going back down to a plateau, then cross the Sainte Marie stream. Turn left onto the uphill path which crosses the "Mandes du Poët" (spring and autumn mountain pastures), then continue to the right. The path levels out, crosses the Cugnet stream and, on a bend, joins the track...

The path levels out, crosses the Cugnet stream and, on a bend, joins the track leading up through the Pramaria woods. Go down to the path which leads up to Cuchet then down again to join the path to Lanslevillard. After the Plâtre stream, the path goes uphill a little, winds between trees and meadows, and joins the Adroit path as it reaches Val Cenis Lanslevillard.
    You can go back down to Les Champs via a path on the right, or reach Val Cenis Lanslebourg via a track, also on the right.
