October 21, 2020
The 13th stage of the Jura-Höhenweg combines everything that is so typical of the Jura Mountains: rocky mountains with views, idyllic forest paths and picturesque lakes. With a good eleven kilometers, today's tour from Vallorbe to Le Pont is one of the shorter stages - a welcome change on the long-distance hiking trail, especially since you can relax in Le Pont on the banks of Lac de Joux.Although there aren't that many kilometers waiting for you today, you have to master a few meters in altitude again. The path up to the Dent de Vaulion rises bit by bit. You walk through a wonderful forest, whose tranquility and idyll accompany you on your way uphill. Arrived at the top of the 1,483-meter-high summit, the breathtaking panorama simply amazes you. On a clear day you can see all of western Switzerland with its numerous lakes. If you are hungry, you will find a cozy restaurant not far from the summit.Freshly strengthened, it's only downhill from here. On the way you will always have beautiful views of the glittering lakes Lac de Brenet and Lac de Joux. Incidentally, the water of the two bodies of water flows underground and forms the karst cave Grottes de l’Orbe near Vallorbe.In Le Pont, a romantic place on the shores of Lac de Joux, you can loosen the laces of your hiking boots and let the rest of the day relax by the water.
