Trail Route - Lac Noir/difficulty red
Distance: 9.8 km
810 m uphill/810 m downhill

Depart from Montchavin town centre
Total immersion in the depths of the forest of Montchavin la Plagne, including a beautiful descent, ideal for perfecting your technique!

From the centre of Montchavin take the road to la Pierra (trampled, in part, by the runners in the 6000D event) and then the "nature trail" to the hamlet of Crévaillet. A series of hairpin bends twist through the idyllic scenery. Keep your eyes open here – you may well bump into some of the forest animals! Continue until the peat bog beside Lac Noir, a unique natural feature formed over several thousand years when the great glaciers were in retreat.

From here, the trail rises gradually to an altitude of 1,876 m before descending to the junction with the Fontaine Froide road, which you take for a short distance before embarking on a very technical descent that passes a short distance from the legendary Vanoise Express cable car and eventually arrives back at the starting point.
