October 21, 2020
The twelfth stage on the Jura High Trail takes you from Sainte-Croix to Vallorbe. You cover the first half of the 23-kilometer tour at the height with a view of the surrounding peaks, then you climb down into the flatlands. At the Col de l’Aiguillon, by the way, you are only a stone's throw from France, military bunkers and decayed tanks remind you of the past of this region on your way near the border.You leave Sainte-Croix and hike over beautiful pastures with a great view. Then you climb up to Grange Neuve and on towards Le Suchet. The short detour to the summit is definitely worth it. Let the fantastic mountain scenery have an extensive effect on you before you head downhill to Ballaigues.You cross the motorway and can take a break on the shore of Lac de la Jougnenaz. From here it is not far to your destination today, Vallorbe. The city developed into an important location for the iron industry as early as the Middle Ages. There is also a museum in town that tells you more about the city's interesting history. You will also find a good selection of accommodation and a train station.
