A forest trail in the shade of tall pine trees up to a light-filled, unique belvedere.

On a carpet of pine needles and leaves, you make your way along a winding path for a long distance. The typical north-facing slope of the forest provides humidity and coolness, excepting in rare places where the sun’s rays peep through the gaps made by uprooted trees after the storm of 5 January 2012.

Bernard Nicollet, Ecrins National Park keeper

Description

The car park - in a cul de sac - is 300 m after the Dessous la Roche car park. From there, under a large beech tree, follow the marked footpath along an uneven forest trail, then turn right onto a small path marking the real entrance to the forest and the heart of the Ecrins Park. From there, follow the path for a long distance across the Combe de La Géline as far as the Pissard des Aiguilles, and you finally arrive in lush sub-Alpine grassland. After three loops through the prairie, you reach the Jas des Agneaux, at point 1893m. Take the same route on the way back or the Vêt - Lac Gary route, arriving at the village of Entraigues, 4 km downstream from Dessous la Roche.

Recommandations

Herd protection dogs

In mountain pastures, protection dogs are there to protect the herds from predators (wolves, etc.).

When I hike I adapt my behavior by going around the herd and pausing for the dog to identify me.

Find out more about the actions to adopt with the article "Protection dogs: a context and actions to adopt".
