Set in a glacial valley, this route offers breathtaking panoramic views. From the “Pont de la Serre”, take advantage of the pools to cool off. Accessible from June to October, forest track in good condition.
From the Pont de la Serre parking lot (accessible in 25 minutes from Colmars only to vehicles with sufficient ground clearance), follow the 8 km forest track closed off by a barrier and head towards the Pont de la Serre, skirting the river Lance.
When you reach the bridge, avoid it and stay on the same bank to continue straight ahead. The path continues without alternative along the Lance. It is possible to make hooks towards the riverbed to observe the many pools, but do so with extreme caution. A safe distance is required to avoid falling, as the edges of the precipices are not stable.
The terrain eases a little upstream of the largest waterfall, where 3 beautiful basins can be easily reached for a refreshing dip before leaving the GR. After a break in this enchanting spot, rejoin the nearby GR and follow it in the opposite direction.
