Discover the various alpine mountain layers thanks to the crossing of forests and pastures but also the great panoramas of surrounding peaks.


Begin the hike at Doucy ski station and descend a small path which opens up into a prairie, towards Doucy village. Take the paved road through the hamlet and walk along the Saint André baroque church, classified historic monument.

The hike then leads to the Morel forest before leading to the impressive imbedded torrent which carries the same name. Take the bridge which crosses the river and hike up the other side of the small valley to discover the recently renovated Old Watermill.

Then, take another bridge over the Morel to walk up a farmer’s track which leads to the end of the forest and to Villaret. Take the road through this typical Savoyard village until arriving at a large path through lovely prairies. From then on, it’s a straight road until arriving back to Doucy ski station.
