Starting from Saint Pierre d'Entremont, which translates to "between the mountains," your journey will lead you to explore the numerous hamlets along the Cozon River.

The river offers both freshness and mystery, as its bed is occasionally concealed beneath rocks and moss, lending the water its distinctive hue.

A discerning eye may spot the ruins of the ancient Teppaz castle on the right, overlooking the Pont du Lac hamlet, which you traverse to reach Les Courriers hamlet.

But the surprises are just beginning! The wooden footbridge at La Chivolande provides a direct view of the Cozon waterfall: as beautiful as it is mesmerizing, it forms a deep cauldron sculpted by erosion, creating an enchanting and refreshing spot.

The trail then winds through a chaos of boulders, whose rounded shapes may evoke certain human and animal silhouettes.


Free of charge.
