Hiking - Le Renardeau Trail Run

Route du Col de la Croix - Le Scex - Bois du Bilioley - Les Avenerys - Route du Col de la Croix

It starts on the Col de la Croix road, along the little forest path marked by a wooden sculpture of a fox cub (start of the fox cub educational trail).
Continue to the Scex mountain refuge which offers spectacular views of the Vaud Alps and Mont Blanc. Keep going along the Chemin du Bretaye and after a few hundred metres along the road, take the path on your left signposted “sentier des renardeaux” (fox cub trail). As you run down through the forest, you’ll spot the tracks of the cogwheel train line between Villars and Bretaye. Leave the tracks on your right and head in the direction of the Col de la Croix, the starting point of this route.
