Trail of Pointe du Dzonfié
The first option (Nant du Beurre trail 2.7kms; 100m+), is a great way to discover the sport or to practice fractioned runs for regulars.
The second option (to reach the “Pointe du Dzonfié”), is a longer trail; 8.5km and 447m+.
Starting from the Nant du Beurre refuge (2080m), go towards the Rochers Blancs (2250m) which you’ll reach after 1.2km and 160m+.
A single track takes you through a sub-alpine environment which has a great view of the Beaufortain Massif, the Valmorel glacial cirque, the Lauzière Massif and the Madeleine Col.
1.3 km and 220m+ further, after following the crest, you’ll reach the highest point of the trail, a few meters beneath the Dzonfié peak (2241m). The track then goes to the Và Col (2220m) over a slightly downhill slope; 3km and 21m-.
The way back to the refuge is also a single track, one of the big advantages of high altitude tracks. Back at the refuge, don’t hesitate to have a drink and make the most of the views on the sunny terrace.
