Easy itinerary which links up the Epinel village to the hamlet of Gimillan or Cogne.
Starting from the high part of the Epinel hamlet (1.470 m), following a short tenant farm path, you can reach the “Tor de Mougne” ruin.
Carrying on to the left, slightly uphill, once crossed the railway underpass, you will reach a crossroad where, by turning to the right, you will go down towards the petrol pump. Proceeding along the municipal road which crosses the Cretaz inhabited area, you will get onto the low part of the “Sant’Orso” route, which reaches the village of Cogne.
From the same crossroad, after the railway underpass, turning to the left, it is possible to follow a track that climbs up to the Gimillan hamlet, between Scotch pine-woods and enchanting views over the Valley of Cogne and the Gran Paradiso massif and gets linked up to the “Serve” itinerary.
