This easy walk from Runinettes to Cabin Mont Fort and back takes you across the winter ski slopes of La Chaux with great views of the Petit Combin, Grand Combin, Bec Des Rosses, and Mont Fort.

As you walk around from Runinettes, you can look at art exhibitions from local sculptors and artists.

Reaching Cabin Montfort take in the fabulous views of the surrounding mountains and maybe stop for lunch.

When leaving the Ruinettes lift station, head southeast along a gravel road until you reach the bottom of La Chaux, walk towards the jumbo lift station, and join a path to the left of the station signposted in yellow to Cabin Mont Fort.

Follow the path up until reaching the cabin.

With the cabin behind you, head left onto the gravel road and walk along the rocky field until reaching a junction with a tunnel and turn right.

You will still be on the gravel road and walking towards the ski fields of the M25 and Chalet Carlsberg.

Head down, and you will finish at the lift station of Ruinettes.
