This hike requires some experience, but you will be rewarded with tranquility, flora, marmots and the beauty of the lake.
Drive to Les Bauches by following the road that carries on 6 km beyond Les Coches. At the junction at Fontaine Froide, keep following the signs for "Les Bauches en voiture". Park in the car park in Les Bauches.

Follow the track and then path towards Le Dérochoir and carry on to the Chalet de Bellecôte.

Leave the main track here and go off to the left, crossing the stream carefully and following the good path in a north-easterly direction up the grassy slopes. After several flat sections, follow the scree up to the lake located in a small hollow at the foot of a rocky ridge.

Walk a little way up the side of the stream flowing into the lake and then come back down the steep meadowland towards the Chalet de Bellecôte. Return along the same path via Le Dérochoir.

Take special care if walking in mist, as the route becomes difficult to follow.
