Hike to Le Cerro

in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc
Presentation

Viewpoint over the Glacier des Bossons. A very pleasant walk up through the woods alongside mountain streams. At the chalet: dairy and refreshments, and restaurant service for lunch; evening dinner upon reservation only. Easy access.

Leave the car at the right-hand side car park on the road to Mont-Blanc Tunnel - it is located 400 metres before the Tunnel entrance. Go up to the embankment and into the forest, following the gently climbing footpath to the Torrent de la Creusette stream, which you can cross using the footbridge. Follow the path that winds up through the trees, ignoring the path on your right coming from Les Bossons. You will come to the glacial moraine and the Chalet du Cerro.

Other itineraries are available from Chamonix, Le Dard waterfall, or Les Bossons.
