After getting off at the bottom of the station, you will reach the Porte de l'Enclos (entrance to the Grande Chartreuse estate).
You start the long ascent of 1000m+ by passing in front of the Museum and then the Monastery Convent (respect the tranquility of the area!). After a first part in the forest along the Saint-Bruno and Casalibus chapels (without passing through them), you cross the first meadows at the Col de la Ruchère before going on to more aerial passages in the Petit Som.
You then find yourself on the Habert de Bovinant plateau before reaching the summit of the Grand Som. The descent passes first through delicate passages at Le Racapé then a pleasant series of bends from the Col des Aures (optional passage to the Col du Cucheron for a view of the Entremonts valley).
At the foot of this path, you briefly go back up to the side of La Scia and return to the base via a balcony path.

Through our practice, it is essential to respect the work of farmers, other operators and owners who welcome us on their land:
So that the herds do not escape, close all electric fences tightly and do not damage them!
Also, don't disturb the herds, greet the people you meet with a friendly "hello", and of course bring back all your garbage! Do not cut routes across the prairies, do not picnic either!
