Description

Accessible to families, this hike runs along the banks of the Saane from Château-d'Œx. Cross the river on the famous Turrian suspension bridge before reaching the icy Ramaclé waterfall. The fairytale atmosphere of the trail will not leave you indifferent!

The tour starts at the snow school, Jardin d’Œx Neiges, at the entrance of Château-d'Œx. Equipped with your snowshoes, head for the Ramaclé forest. Between the snow-covered trees, you can see the suspension bridge that crosses the Saane. The Turrian bridge was built in 1883 and is considered the oldest of its kind in western Switzerland. Walk through it and feel it moving under your feet. Below, the river Saane flows from the Saanenland towards the canton of Fribourg. Once you have crossed the bridge, the trail takes you through small clearings to the Ramaclé waterfall. When the temperatures allow it, it presents itself with impressive ice formations. The return route leads through enchanting winter landscapes back to the Turrian bridge and from there to the starting point.

PRACTICAL INFORMATION - Adapted for families - Also accessible on foot. We advise you to take good shoes and poles for the icy areas. GETTING THERE - By car: a large parking area is available free of charge at the edge of Jardin d'Œx Neiges. - By train: via the MOB line (stop "Gare de Château-d'Œx"). It takes less than 10-minutes to walk to the starting point of the route. - By bus: from the Col des Mosses (stop "Le Petit Pré"). It takes 2-minutes to walk to the starting point. In case of lack of snow, the path is passable on foot
