Just a few steps take you beyond the Sollières town centre, onto a gently sloping countryside path. You'll probably come across some placid horseriders. Gradually, turn after turn, the ascent leads you to a trail that's discreetly indicated by a cairn on your left. Enter the fragrant pine forest and weave your way between its Scots pines. Have you ever heard cones snap under the sun's rays?
Step out of the shadows into the light in the clearing of Le Mont. It's an enchanting place for a nap or a rest. Lulled by the crickets' song, enjoy the moment. At the gates of Vanoise National Park, you've got front row seats to admire the breathtaking panoramic views of the valley. Mont Froid and Signal du Petit Mont Cenis are revealed in all their glory, as they seem to hang in mid-air.
The trail winds its way back straight down from La Loza, inciting you to race downhill. Step by step, you come back to earth, feeling like you've been in another world.
