La Pierre à Bérard

in Vallorcine

A very pleasant walk along the Eau de Berard, partly through larch woods and on the edge of the Vallon de Bérard Nature Reserve. On arrival, a refuge with restaurant and dormitories.

Take the path before the Hotel du Buet. Walk up through the meadows to the
Chalet de la Cascade de Berard. Follow the path through a lovely larch wood and
then up a steep-sided gorge to the first plateau known as Fontaine-Froide.
Higher up, cross the torrent at the Vordette bridge (1,528 m) and climb a steep rocky slope to reach a second plateau. A succession of natural terraces brings you to the foot of the final slope. Once across the stream, the path zigzags up to the mountain refuge, which is situated below a huge rock.
