Col des Avouillons

Sport, Pedestrian sports, Trail route at Lourtier 
24.0 km
  • A substantial trail which will reward any trail runner looking for adventure and exertion: a 2,000-metre vertical gain with just as much descent along the way, where you can bask in the beauty of the Massif du Grand Combin!

  • From Lourtier to the Cabane Brunet hut, where you can refuel, the map shows 1,000m elevation gain. You’re motivated by the promise of a magnificent vista that keeps you going towards the Becca Sery, which you wander past, blown away by the commanding Petit Combin. It’s then a fairly steep climb up a rocky path and slowly you begin to enjoy each and every step as you head towards the well-earned view.

It’s then a fairly steep climb up a rocky path and slowly you begin to enjoy each and every step as you head towards the well-earned view. At the Col des Avouillons, gasping, you use up a few more breaths taking in the beautiful scene of the Corbassière glacier spreading its tongue at the foot of the Grand Combin. Reinvigorated, you begin the sharp descent, crossing the footbridge and tackling a short but intense climb up to the Panossière hut, gazing constantly at the imperial massif. Freshly fed at the hut, prepare for a long downhill on a rocky, pebbly path to the Bisse de Corbassière. The last traverse through the hamlets of Fionnay and Plamproz is a pretty picturesque treat.
