Start at Nant Soleil, on Route de la Grallière.

(S/F) Take Route de la Grallière south-west.
Turn right on Route de la Piscine, then the second right through all the chalets and flowers toward the swimming pool. There is already a beautiful view of the village.
Pass in front of the pool, the road straightens.

(1) A few steps to the left brings you to the ecological trail laid out by the municipality.
Pass through the underwood on the scree and onto open ground. Wildlife information signs have been put in place to inform the visitor.
Upon leaving the woods, go past an old cottage. There is a nice view over the village and the main ski slope of La Clusaz.
Then head down to the road leading to the village entrance. The slope is steep!

(2) Pause at the Parc Chapel, before hitting the dirt road to enter the village itself.
Avoid cars passing on the right, along the small stream. At the roundabout, leave the road to the right and go straight ahead.

Pass the new "Au coeur du village” hotel, in front of the ski lift, ice rink, the summer toboggan run and under the gondola lift to Beauregard. The slope starts to climb more steeply. We are now well above the church tower and get a different perspective over the village.

(3) Cross the Route du Col des Aravis and along mountain bike trails, go under the "eggs" and reach the heights along the tracks.
Here there is yet another view of the village and chalets. You can also see the pool.
At an intersection, continue straight ahead passing a path on the right to the Equestrian Centre. Go down to the hotel Beauregard to the roundabout which opens onto Route de la Grallière.

(4) Turn left taking the outbound path to reach the starting point.
