Hiking itinerary

Torchefelon's Surroundings

This hike will allow you to explore the Vallin forest, a mystical place with its ponds, and its two streams: one with limestone and the other ferrugineous, Rompu pond and the Ravoux pond. You will be able to enjoy the view at the end of the hike.

From the church car park, head towards La Taillat. At the sign, take the grassy path towards Les Quatre Sapins to reach the cross roads in Saint-Joseph. The route then takes you on a nice loop through the Vallin forest, passing by the Vallin pond. Finish the loop to return to Saint-Joseph, then go back to the sign for Les Quatre Sapins.

Then head towards Dessus Mirieu, pass by Ravoux pond then follow the path that rises uphill alongside the Gadizieu stream. Continue onwards, passing by Dessus Mirieu, and join the D520 at the sign for Le Rapoux. Keep left and walk along the road (be careful) for 50m when you will see, on your left, the Chemin de Brumière. This will take you to the sign for Le Bessay. Keep going until you reach the sign for Croix des Poulets. Take the road to end up in Torchefelon.
