Starting at Col des Mosses, this hike ascends to «Lioson d'En-Bas», where you can visit the Alpine cheese dairy, and then up to «Vers les Lacs» (refreshment stall). This hike, whose main attraction is Lake Lioson, first leads to Pic Chaussy which is reputed for its unrestricted view of the Alps of the Lake Geneva Region. Ibex and marmots delight passers-by as well. On coming back down from Pic Chaussy, don't miss the emerald pearl of Alpine lakes - Lake Lioson - whose emerald colour is created by the surrounding mountains reflected in the water. Snacks possible. In summer there are farm animals for the delight of children and adults.
