Above the town of Gryon, opposite the Muverans and Les Dents du Midi, the Cergenement to Solalex trail is located at the foot of the Miroir d’Argentine. This famous climbing site is the fossilised remains of an ancient tropical lagoon from the time of the Thetys sea. The impressive Miroir rock face has been standing here for several millions of years.
After this, the trail becomes wilder and wilder, climbing up to a forested area and emerging onto the impressive plateau of the Solalex Valley. An absolute delight for the eyes, the Miroir d’Argentine towers above you, with views of the Les Diablerets mountains and its steep rocks. After taking a little break on the terrace of the hut, the trail heads down to the Cergnement valley, passing some stone chalets, the former summer residence of the poet Juste Olivier, who loved the Vaud region.
In the centre of Alpe des Chaux, the Frience Snack Bar offers drinks and snacks right at the heart of all the activity.
