The exposure grade describes the potential consequences of falling or slipping off the path.
Low Exposure: The path is on completely flat land and potential injury is limited to falling over.
Medium Exposure: The trail contains some obstacles such as outcroppings and rock which could cause injury.
High Exposure: Some trail sections have exposed ledges or steep ascents/descents where falling could cause serious injury.
Extreme Exposure: Some trail sections are extremely exposed where falling will almost certainly result in serious injury or death.
An enjoyable walk ascending almost 500 metres, but the majority of the walk is flat.
Taking in the views of Verbier from Carrefour you take the road (which is only drivable in summer) towards Les Plannards and the restaurant Le Marmotte.
This is a gradual incline until you reach the path at Les Planards that takes you to just below Croix des Couer.
From there you follow the fire road track with panoramic views of Verbier until reaching the lift station at Ruinettes.
