As you exit the village of La Fouly, take the path that goes up to the Petit col Ferret. The path makes a sharp turn at the Gîte de la Léchère and the grassy pastures quickly give way to the rocky world of the Taves du Dolent. Beneath the imposing Mont Dolent, you’ll reach the first pass with a spectacular view of the Val Ferret and the Grandes Jorasses. Cross over to the Italian side and enjoy a run through large expanses of grass before returning to Swiss territory via the Grand Col Ferret. Head down to the alpine pasture of La Peule on the famous Tour du Mont Blanc route. From the hut, follow a short, relatively steep climb before starting your descent towards the valley, where the path crosses numerous bridges to explore both sides of the Dranse.
