From the village, on the southern side, set off with your family on a nice walk into the woods and along meadows.
Starting point: Champagny le Bas - Le Planay
Arrival: bottom of the gondola
Duration: 45 min

From the bridge in the Planay district (after the second Sherpa supermarket - there are two in the village), take the path running along the stream, then weave across the forest. Higher up at the junction, keep walking to the left an up through meadows and reach the Dôdes Chalet (alt.1397 m).

A large track heads gently down to the ski slopes' crossroads. Cross the stream, walk on the trail, on the right bank, heading to the hamlet La Traye. Cross the hamlet and then take the trail down to the gondola.

The hiking can be done in the other way around (easier route if you start from the bottom of the gondola).
