Energetic sports route taking you through our beautiful alpine villages and offering stunning views of Mont Blanc. One of our best routes possibly culminating in a visit to the thermal baths if you decide to continue on to Lavey-les-Bains.
Starting from Bretaye (take the Villars-Bretaye cogwheel train), follow a track leading you to the Col de la Croix road.
The route goes through Taveyanne and continues on to Les Chaux and down to Frience. From here, you continue along a track to Solalex and ride along the left bank of the Avançon to Les Pars.
At this point, you have two choices. Either you continue on route No 68/580 to Lavey, or you return to Gryon station by road.
