“A run with the best views of Lac Leman and surrounding mountains.”— Juan Gallego
As you leave Rochers de Naye, you'll be running in an alpine-like setting; the crazy thing is that it is not far from the city! This is what makes this area special. Parts of the trail are very narrow, rocky, and covered with some grass, which makes it challenging for running. Sometimes, it is hard to see the rocks under the grass so be careful. Towards Col de Chaude, you'll run on a ridge with minimum exposure but breathtaking views. The descent through the forest switchbacks allows you to gain some speed on some really nice singletrack.
As you leave Col de Chaude, you'll start another climb to the ridge prior to Malatraix. Again, you'll enjoy an amazing technical trail with stunning views. However, this can be a bit exposed, so treat it with care!
From Malatraix, start the descent towards a beautiful forest along a deep gorge (at times) until you reach the town of Roche.
