Leaving from the Colmars-les-Alpes tourist information office, it’s a 1.5-hour climb via the path behind the rescue center to the Pont de la Serre. Before starting your journey to the lakes, stop off at the Fruchière forest gîte. It’s open from late June to mid-October, with all the comforts you need to enjoy a hot shower after your climb. Reservations can be made at the Colmars tourist information office.
From Colmars-les-Alpes, the forest trail to the Pont de la Serre parking lot leads from the Buissière district on the outskirts of the village. The track is passable, and you’ll need to drive for about 45 minutes or 8 kilometers to reach your destination.
Lac de l’Encombrette West and Lac de l’Encombrette East are two permanent fishing reserves. Fishing is prohibited all year round, all species and all techniques. For further information, please consult the 2021 fishing guide.
The beauty of the basins of the Lance makes a stopover at the Fruchière forest lodge a must, to enjoy an immersion in the heart of nature.
