Sentiero ombreggiato e fresco, lungo il fiume. Ideale per una piccola passeggiata nella quiete.
DescriptionFrom the SNCF train station in Les Houches, join the Coupeau road and cross
the bridge over the railway. Follow the Eaux Rousses path on the right until you
enter the woods. Carry straight on along the path in the direction of Chamonix.
The forest trail then follows the Arve river to Les Bossons, below the Vouillouds
gully, crosses the grove and carries on to Les Gaillands following the particularly
picturesque Promenade à l’Anglais (climbing site, lakes, refreshment chalet...).
Carry on past the climbing cliff along the Pècles road, to the left, which will lead
you right into the centre of Chamonix via the Lionel Terray roundabout.
Return by the same route 2 h, or by train.
This walk can be shortened by starting from the bridges in Les Bossons, Piralotaz or the Montquarts footbridge.
