This riverside and woodland walk is perfect for sunny days and won't make you want to go on difficult climbs. A refreshing spot minutes from the village.
Nature and Heritage:
The source of the Brevon, (Bièvre meaning “beaver” in old French) or Dranse de Bellevaux, is near the Roc d'Enfer at an altitude of 1450m. After a few kilometres in Petetoz Forest, the Brevon reaches the hamlet of La Chèvrerie where it pools into Lac de Vallon. It runs up to Bellevaux then ends its 22km run in the Dranse de Morzine.
Route details:
Cross the covered bridge and turn left onto the path along the Brevon until the Pont des Doubines (sawmill on the right) and follow Buchille forest road for approximately 300m then turn left down a path to a sawmill. After 250m, turn left until you reach the La Cressonnière footbridge. Cross the footbridge and join the tarmac Chez Maurice road, turn left and continue (the road will turn into a path) until you reach Bossons where you should follow the road to the centre via the Courtyard.
