Sport, Pedestrian sports, Trail route at Verbier Station 

21.0 km
  • With varied terrain, this 22km trail starts with a good first climb of around 1,000m followed by undulating slopes on false flats that take you back to Verbier. And don’t forget the view of the famous rock!

    When you get to the Chute du Bisse, a steep climb takes you through forest which opens out suddenly onto pastures where chamois and marmots roam. The next challenge is to keep firmly focused on the ridge underfoot instead of being distracted by... When you get to the Chute du Bisse, a steep climb takes you through forest which opens out suddenly onto pastures where chamois and marmots roam. The next challenge is to keep firmly focused on the ridge underfoot instead of being distracted by the landscape: on one side Verbier beckons and on the other is Sembrancher, the gateway to the whole of Entremont. As you continue, if it’s early enough, you might spot chamois in the grassy hollow to your left before they flee into the emptiness of the gully overlooking the Levron. A section of scree covers a few dozen metres before you find yourself at the foot of the unique rock that metamorphoses depending on which way you look at it: the Pierre Avoi. The route then becomes smoother with the Col de la Marlène pass, a short downhill to the Croix de Coeur and an uninterrupted view of Verbier, which hugs its sunny plateau. If you're in a hurry, pick up the pace on the road to the Col des Mines, before starting the descent to the Bisse du Levron, which you follow quietly to the idyllic restaurant de la Marlénaz before returning to Verbier.
