Description of the route

This great historical and naturalistic interest route start from the car parks of Brusson Lake. After crossing the wooden bridge, walk the first 300 m, reach the village of Creste, crossing centuries-old conifer woods up to the Napoleon fountain, where the legend tells that the leader stopped to rest. From here reach Col de Joux and follow the Ru Courtod northwards and go down to Extrapiéraz.
