Monteynard Lake Footbridges

Monteynard Lake Footbridges

This walk allows you to explore the banks of Lake Monteynard, and offers some outstanding views of Sénépy. The two Himalayan footbridges over the Drac and the Ébron rivers will be a high point in the walk, as they overlook the rivers from a height of 80m.

At Treffort cross the lake on one of the boats, either 'La Mira' or 'Pass'Express'. At the Savel jetty, follow the road for 1km before taking the path that leads downhill towards Le Pont. Take the track to the right towards La Tourbe, at the sign for which you should take the path on the right that slopes downhill until you reach the impressive Drac footbridge. Follow the path leading down hill to the right. After the sign marked 'ruisseau des avalanches', the path leads to Les Horts where the forest makes way for meadows, and continues to climb onto the small plateau, at which point it meets the road leading to the hamlet of Villaranet. After walking 400m, take the path that rises to the left up to the ridge. Follow the road on the left for 70m, before turning off onto the path leading downhill on the right, which snakes onto a ridge and descends towards the Ébron footbridge. On the other side of the footbridge, follow the gently rising path and continue onwards, overlooking Monteynard Lake, towards 'Treffort le lac'. Pass the sign marked 'ruisseau Baraton' and les Sagnes. Finally, follow the track, then the road, which goes through Herbelon and return to the starting point.
