Bruil - Casotto del Sort - Alpe Chaussettaz

Summer path

From Rhemes Notre Dame, departed from the small village of Bruil, follow the signs for the Entrelor Hill. The trailhead is located right next to the Park house, home of the surveillance service in the Valley (Oreiller hamlet). At the first fork in the trail continue as shown on the left to the Sort Valley. After a leisurely hike through larches, pines and spruces, and among nutcrackers, shy roe deer and chamois, you arrive at the rangers wooden shelter. Follow then, slightly downhill, a scenic trail that allows  us to reach the Alpe Chaussettaz from which the journey ends, with return downhill to Bruil. Returning along the nature trail in the Valley you can continue from Bruil until Chanavey.

The crossing at high altitude is an amazing balcony over the Rhemes valley with multiple possibilities of characteristic Alpine fauna sighting in the Park, especially the Golden Eagle and the bearded vulture.
