Discover the Feissons-sur-Isère forest, village and castle.

Make the most of the beautiful forest on the way down and take a sneaky peak of the hamlets on the opposing mountain range. You can also see the Arc Col and the Bellachat Mount, an emblematic summit of the Lauzière Massif.


At the caste, take the main road for 300m then follow the path into the woods («Les Côtes» 510m). As the incline gets steeper, take a left hand turn after 1.5km, towards Grand Glaize. The forest gets denser and massive rock formations emerge as you get closer to Grand-Glaize (1040m).

The last few uphill meters are after a left-hand turn towards the TiIlet (1140m) until reaching the highest point (1168m), 4.2km into the run.

Continue down the hill and go through the stone houses of Planchang and then the localities of “du Mont” and “Chez Gardet” (650m).

The final stretch reaches the “Perrières” (484m) and re-joins the castle after 500m on the main road.
