Chemin des Gardes's loop

at Val-Cenis

  • This itinerary crosses the village's low mountain pastures, follows the Chemin du Petit Bonheur and offers a chance to visit St Etienne Chapel (collect the key from St Roch Chapel). Then a lovely forest path takes you past the engraved stone of "Inchaplour".

  • Go up the street opposite the church, then take the second street on the left to follow the Chemin du Petit Bonheur (GR5E great hiking trail) towards Chantelouve. About 250 metres after the Sarrasins rock-climbing site, at the intersection take the righthand path back to Val Cenis Lanslevillard (take the higher of the 2 paths, the Chemin des Gardes). Then take the righthand path down towards the Inchaplour engraved stone. Follow the track back down to Val Cenis Lanslevillard.
