A paradise for hiking
On Mount Lachens, the forest alternates with areas of grassland and steppe with sparse vegetation.
The ubac, or northern slope, is dominated by a thick forest. Numerous trails wind under the trees, leading up to the summit. Secret paths slip between the trunks, inviting you to discover the jealously guarded treasures of a preserved nature. You can also reach the summit by taking the Lachens forest road, which leaves from the Col de Clavel on the D21 departmental road.
The adret, or southern slope, offers a different face. The trees are rarer here, and the large areas of short vegetation dominate a landscape that is both austere and grandiose.
An viewpoint indicator has been set up on the secondary summit of Mont Lachens. The access via La Bastide hiking trail requires a medium level. With a distance of almost 14km, and a medium duration of 6 hours, this activity will definitely seduce hiking enthusiasts.
