Description

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.

Difficulty

Moderate

Hiking along trails with some uneven terrain and small hills. Small rocks and roots may be present.
