You will undoubtedly encounter the friendly “Hello” of other hikers along this walk but you will also enjoy the fresh spring air and an amazing view from the top. The hike starts in Les Contamines village and continues along a beautiful forest path. Climb slowly but surely until you reach a crossroads. From here join the path from La Gruvaz and follow the wide path that leads to the Chalets de Miage and Mont Truc. On the way up, stop for a rest on the green bench before taking the path signposted to Mont Truc. As you walk towards the summit and the auberge, the trees will disappear behind you leaving room for a breathtaking view. You can walk down via the Chalets de Miage and join your path below.
During this walk, and on any other walk in Les Contamines, the view and the weather will have your full attention. Will you think to look closer?
In the heart of the forest, or at the summit of Mont Truc, several small details are worth being noticed! Below are some photos of what I saw. Zoom in on my spring walk.
