A short but delightful walk through woodland very close to the bustling mountain centre of Chamonix Mont-Blanc. The high point is a specatacular viewpoint overlooking the river cascading down from the Mer de Glace.

Much of the walk is on the moraine left from when the Mer de Glace glacier once reached right down into the Chamonix Valley. Now it has retreated far uphill, leaving interestingly rounded rocks through which the river now tumbles. There are great views up to the peaks towering above and across the valley to Chamonix and beyond.
