Solalex - Anzeinde - Col des Essets - La Motte - Roc du Chatelet - Solalex
Starting from the car park at the bottom of Solalex, climb to Anzeinde then keep going to the Col des Essets. Make the most of the spectacular view of l'Ecuelle and the surrounding peaks. Take care as you walk down to the plateau then head for La Vare. After about 1.8 km, take a right up to La Motte. Admire the spectacular view of the Grand Muveran and the Lion d'Argentine. Keep going carefully towards Solalex. There’s a chain to hold onto as you go down if the ground is slippery. Only use this trail in good weather.
If the previous days have been rainy, this route can be done in an anti-clockwise direction to avoid going down the most delicate part between Roc du Châtelet and Solalex.
