This walk will take you to the top of the village of Lullin for fabulous views of the Swiss Alps' peaks. A climb that's worth your time!
Nature and Heritage:
This walk takes you along the way of the cross built in 1842 by the Vailly residents whose stops bear the names of donors. The Vailly residents were also behind the chapel devoted to the Virgin Mary, completed in 1517. The chapel was destroyed in 1536 during the Chablais’ protestant period. The current sanctuary was built in 1840.
Route details:
Park in front of the Town Hall or Tourist Information. Follow the "Cascade, Chapelle d'Hermone" footpath behind the church. After 10 minutes walking in the forest you will come out near the waterfall where deer often come to drink.
Continue along the trail and you will reach "La Touvière." Follow the route for 200m then turn right. Turn right when you reach the woods. The path takes you up to “Mollard” then “Le Feu”. The path here is signposted "Chapelle d'Hermone" on the border then in the forest after you’ve been through La Feu hamlet. After a few twists and turns in uncultivated mountain pastures, the way of the cross will lead you to Notre Dame d'Hermone. To get back, go back to Le Feu village then La Touvière via Muffaz. The route is then the same one that you took to get here.
You can also go back from Col du Feu, especially with children.
Useful information: yellow markings followed by red and white.
