Walk to the point of view of the Croix de Châtel

From the Col du Mollendruz to the summit of Châtel, a lookout with a plunging view from Lake Neuchâtel to Geneva.

Through the forest and along the ridge you will overlook Lake Geneva and admire a direct view of the Alps. Once you reach the Croix de Châtel, you have a 360-degree view.
BOUCLE 13 km: Departure from the car park at Col du Mollendruz. The trail starts with several passages in the forest, then climbs up a ridge to the Châtel refreshment bar. From the cross, go down towards the Combe du Pré de l'Haut and then follow the old Roman road which takes you to the Buvette des Croisettes. Continue towards L'Abbaye where you will discover on your left the village of Tipis Madrugada. Continue by taking the Ermitages crossing from where you will enjoy a magnificent view of Lac de Joux and Lac Brenet. When you arrive near Petra Felix, cross the cantonal road twice, then finish the walk along the Combe de la Grande Posogne to your starting point at the Col du Mollendruz.

RACCOURCI 9 km: Before the Croisettes, turn right to join the chalet of the Jura Club then continue the descent to the Col du Mollendruz.
