Les Hauts de Thoiry - Crêt de la Neige - Reculet
15.3 km 1320 m 1320 m
départ Thoiry (01)
Crêt de la Neige and Reculet constitute a superb balcony on Lake Geneva and the peaks of the Alps. The itinerary that I propose describes a loop that begins in the forest to reach the foothills of the Massif before ascending further to win the Crêt de la Neige, the highest summit of the Jura Massif. The return journey passes through the Reculet, a very recognizable peak with a metal cross at the top, which was carried on the back of men. I also suggest an another itinerary for hikers who wish to climb the Reculet only. This ramble is hard because of its length and difficulty, especially when descending, as the stony trail to get back to the parking lot requires a lot of attention. (However, the trail path to have been remodeled quite recently) The descent can put off some. There are no technical or exposed passages. With luck, you can see some chamois very present on the crests.
