“Another beautiful (and the highest) Portes du Soleil segment with the usual mix of single/doubletrack”— Lost Justpastnowhere
After the first mile the trail levels out, passing a small alpine lake before passing the Refuge de Chésery (mountain hut). Take a moment to enjoy the view and some refreshments if you haven't already. Shortly after the refuge, you'll pass back into France and the route becomes a gently descending singletrack for the following mile. When you do merge with another gravel forest road around 3 miles, the Portes du Soleil circuit continues straight along the road which takes you rapidly down to the lift base, restaurants, and parking above les Lindarets.
The Portes du Soleil (Gateway to the Sun) circuit then continues following the PdS: Les Lindarets to Morzine segment.
