Botanical trail Les Choucas

The Gruyères - Pays d'Enhaut Regional Nature Park presents the wild flora along this trail, which is equipped with information panels. The Jackdaw Trail (le sentier des Choucas) offers the opportunity to discover a magnificent heritage of flowers and trees.

Three variants are proposed for the discovery of the botanical trail:

Parking de la Dent - Cabane des Choucas.
The route is on marked mountain paths. Between the fork in the road and the Choucas hut, the path is equipped with short ladders set against the rocks. The route is secured by cables, but remains a delicate passage for people not used to the mountain. Difference in height: 350m. Walking time: 1 hour out and 40 minutes back by the same route. 12 plants labelled in the forest at the bottom of the route and 25 plants labelled near the Choucas hut.

Parking de la Dent - bas des Mérils (or les trois Fenils).
Itinerary on a marked mountain path without difficulties. Difference in height: 170m. Walking time: 40 min. out and 30 min. back on the same path. 12 labelled plants in the forest at the bottom of the route.

Parking de la Dent - Cabane des Choucas - Les Mérils - les Trois Fenils - parking de la Dent.
Looped route on marked mountain paths. Two difficulties: one between the first fork and the Choucas hut; the other between the Choucas hut and Les Mérils with a section passing through three gullies carved into the slope. The route is secured by cables, but there is a risk of vertigo for those prone to it. Difference in height: 400m. Walking time: 2 hours.
