This route offers stunning views of Leysin and Lake Geneva and takes you through the old village of Panex, which is part of the famous Salt Trail. At the end of the route, you’ll come to Ollon with its superb vineyards and village; well worth a visit.
This is mostly a downhill route of moderate difficulty, alternating between forest tracks and alpine meadow roads on the first section.
Two fairly easy sections of flat paths (one between the Les Tailles quarry and Les Ecovets and the other between Panex and Ollon) offer an interesting diversity to the route. Follow the route 572 signs.
