Good walk, great views, a little disconcerting for some at Roche aux Corbeaux perhaps.
A pretty little walk with a beautiful viewpoint over Lac des Corbeaux, where you may like to take a dip.
At the start of Lake Lispach, this hike will take you through a variety of settings. Peat bogs bordering Lake Lispach where you will see the Vosges’ forests and even some of the Rouge Feigne’s stubble more than 1,100 m above sea level. The return on the mountainside will eventually convince you that the Vosges are not just for cows...
Observe the chamois in the Wormspel, soak your feet in the clear waters of lake Schiessrothried and appreciate the beauty of the Frankenthal-Missheimle nature reserve. And, if possible, stop at a farm-guesthouse for an excellent day!
As a variation of this hike, go via the Col de Falimont, where you can find practical information.
Start at the Col de la Schlucht car park...
A very athletic outing. Good equipment and good physical condition are recommended!
“Les Perles de Vologne” is a wonderful site on the shaded bank of the Vologne.
You will pass on Pont des Fées and the Marie-Louise islands, before climbing along the torrent in the Roitelets Gorge, to reach the Roche des Bruyères from where you can admire the town of Gerardmer and its lake. Then, at the Gilet Fountain, located in the forest, you can refresh your hands.
Take a break at the Belbriette Pond before descending to Longemer Lake and the Saint Florent chapel.
A beautiful hike that takes you up to the “Gazons”, the famous pastures of the Hautes Vosges, and along the steep slopes overlooking the magnificent cirques where the lakes of Lac Vert and Lac du Forlet lie. All of this is situated at an altitude and in landscapes that are reminiscent of the Alps.
An original route to get to Lac du Grand Ballon avoiding the road. You will discover beautiful trees, a waterfall and views over the Petit Ballon and the Black Forest along the way.
This short hike on trails marked by the Club Vosgien has in the first instance views of the valley of Munster, and also a view of the peaks of the Vosges. The many picnic opportunities around the Lac des Truites or Lac Forlet lakes, the trout spotting opportunities, as well the welcoming farmhouse make for an enjoyable outing.
