Test trail from Les Tines to the centre of Chamonix via the Petit Balcon Sud.

One-way route to Chamonix along a path then a wider track, via the "Petit Balcon Sud".
From Les Tines, the trail goes under the railway line then along the right bank of the Arve towards Chamonix. At the first crossroads, turn right and go up along the "Petit Balcon Sud" path. This path is fairly steep for 400 m, then levels out. Two-thirds of the way along this trail, the path merges into a wider track which leads to the departure point of the PlanPraz cable car. It then continues to the centre of Chamonix.

A mountain biking trail guide is available from the bike rental shops around the Valley and the Tourist Offices.
