Picturesque lake formed as a result of the rock fall from le Derochoir. It nestles in
a hollow at the foot of the Rochers des Fiz. Chalet-restaurant. Accessible by car.
Fishing is possible in the lake (requires a fishing licence).

From the far end of the hamlet La Côte (car park), follow the track which takes you across meadows and then into the forest and joins a path coming from the main road. It bears right and brings you out at Lac Vert near the chalet. It is worthwhile walking right round the lake to take in the wonderful views.

Suggestion: Extend the hike up to Plaine-Joux or Chatelet for the view.

Others itinerary available from "le Vieux Servoz" or the center of the village: count about 2h to go.
More information at the Tourist Office, High Mountain Office and in our hiking guide.
Careful : Tracks conditions may change, let us remind you to be well-informed before going.
