Chloé Perceval planned a run.
September 2, 2021
This is a demanding but splendid loop, which takes you to Pointe de l'Arcalod, the highest point of the Bauges.From the car park, you start your ascent in the forest towards the Col du Chérel on the GRP du Massif des Bauges. From the Col, we already have some nice views of the surrounding peaks. It motivates!You continue your ascent with a few hairpin bends, then a pretty ridge trail takes you to the top of the Tête du Pas de l'Ours, at an altitude of 1,679 meters. You descend slightly through the Pas de l'Ours, then take a winding path again which leads you to the Col d'Orgeval. From there, you can already enjoy a superb panorama of the Aravis mountain range.Shortly after the Col, you turn right to climb up to Pointe de l'Arcalod. From there, the trail winds up and you see many lapiaz, these multifaceted cracks created in the rocks by water and time. The last few meters are in the slabs, and it is useful to help yourself with your hands. From the top, you overlook the Massif des Bauges! You enjoy a 360 ° panorama which also includes the Beaufortain Massif, the Vanoise Massif, and Mont Blanc. It's breathtaking.You descend to the main hiking trail through the same winding bends. You then begin your descent by passing near the tip of Banc Ferrand, then through the Plan de la Limace mountain pasture. You enjoy the last nice panoramas, and you are back in the woods, then at the departure car park.
