This itinerant hike allows you to discover an incredible variety of landscape, meadows, vines, forests, stubble and viewpoints in two days of walking. You can climb up the "Petit Ballon" which has a high of 1272m. You will pass in particular by the vestiges of the convent of Schwartzenthann (XIIth century). Although it has a relatively large cumulative elevation gain, this hike does not present any major technical difficulties. Composed of two stages of 12 and 18 kilometers, it is accessible to occasional walkers. The moderate mileage of the stages leaves plenty of time to enjoy the magnificent landscapes.
