Gourmet walk in Sainte-Croix / Les Rasses

Description

For nature lovers, families or friends, magnificent vistas of the Jura mountains and culinary pleasures.

The walk consists of three legs, starting in Sainte-Croix (Col des Etroits). It begins with a nice stroll in the woods towards Praises, andthen Saut-de-l’Eau. At the first gourmet stop, at Chalet de la Mayaz, a plate with local produce is offered as an appetizer (1st leg= 1h15).

The second stop is at another typical farm, le Chalet du Sollier, accessible via a path among pastures. The famous "fondue surprise" (2nd leg : 20’), served in a bread bowl, and local specialty, is enjoyed among farm animals.

A well-deserved dessert awaits the walkers at famous chalet La Casba, nestled in the pinetrees near the Chasseron peak (1607m). Cream cake or « menegetz » are the unavoidable delicacies of the place. Moreover the Cochet cross, from where you can see the whole valley, is close by (3rd leg: 30’). It takes about 45 minutes for the return walk on the path named "path of the Cows".
