This 9km route takes you to a corner of paradise at an altitude of 1'600 metres. At this altitude, you can regain your strength with a cold drink and a traditional menu.
Bring good shoes and set off from the centre of Château-d'Œx, along the roads towards "La Dent". Up to this point, the cows will greet you through the pastures.
Then take the gravel path in the direction of the Pointe de Cray, after a few metres of ascent you will see a ladder on your right and this is where the route becomes more technical.
After climbing a few ladders in the forest for a little over 30 minutes, you arrive at the corner of paradise at the Cabane des Choucas.
The view from this place is exceptional, you can admire the whole mountain range from the Rübli in Rougemont to the Dent de Corjon in the commune of Rossinière while tasting a traditional dish offered by the hut's manager.
Now that you have regained your strength, you can continue your hike behind the Choucas and return to the village without going up the ladder.
