Description

Snowshoe Trail of easy level to medium, in the bucolic frame of the forest of Sodoleuvre and the high mountain pasture of Taveyanne, then return towards Villars by Coufin and La Verneyre.

From the Combe du Scex (at the end of the Alpe des Chaux road), go up 100m in the forest passage, then go down to the right and carefully cross the 4 ski runs. Follow the forest track for about 2km, until you reach Taveyanne. Go along the bottom of the hamlet and descend to your left (towards the line of posts). Then go down the hillside to the right following the markings. Go downhill, cross the cross-country ski trail and continue into a clearing following the plateau (posts). Return to the cross-country track for 10m then turn left parallel to the cross-country track. Cross the river carefully on the snow bridge, then continue to the two chalets and follow the cross-country track for 10m. Turn left. Follow the river (it may be snowed in) for about 1km and go up on your right to the cross-country track on the Col de la Croix road. Back in Villars, follow the cross-country track to Roches Grises. Also possible descend from the arrival of the Chaux gondola to Taveyanne.
