This trail goes through the Chamonix valley, taking you to the Merlet Animal Park from Les Bossons. All along, there are wonderful views over the Valley and the Mont Blanc Massif. Take the Chemin de la Vigne which crosses the Arve river and go up to the right in the small wood of the Ravin des Vouillouds. The path joins the one coming from Les Gaillands. You can start from the Montquarts footbridge which leads to the Epinettes path. More information is available at the Tourist Office or the Office de Haute-Montagne and in our trail guide. Warning: Trail conditions are subject to change, so be sure to check before you leave.
