Auberge des Alllieres loop under Pic Saint Michel Map

Great short hike from the ski resort car park, ascends to very pretty and mellow alpine terrain above Lans en Vercors. With stunning views towards Pic Saint Michel and a little later then down to the Vercors valley. A short but fairly steep and loose descent brings you out onto a small open plateau that contains one of the best refuges of the area. Follow the easy 4x4 track back to carpark, passing one of the local climbing crags en route.
