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.
