St Gervais Le Bettex to Mont Joux (RED) 15km /-650M This route starts in the carpark at the top of the Le Bettex ski lift.
If you are accompanied by cyclists you could as easily start in St Nicolas de Veroce or St Gervais and follow the back roads to the car park, but for walkers it is nicer to start higher.
The route is a beautiful circuit that passes by the Col de la Croix du Christ, Mont Joux and Mont d’Arbois.
Most of the terrain is easy and would be classed as Blue, unfortunately there are a couple of unavoidable steep sections necessitating the Red classification. (The GPS routing starts and finishes at the higher Le Bettex lift station car park- Saint-Gervais-le Bettex to Mont Joux.gpx)
