This trail and the preceding sections is my favorite “enduro” route in Verbier. Scenic and challenging with varied terrain. Easy mostly-downhill cruise through the town at the bottom back to the Le Châble lift.

Beautiful route, all natural trails easy to link together.
Possibly best route in the area.
Last part is steep and full of tight switchbacks but with decent riding skills is doable, no need a pro level for it.
If you hesitate and have a doubt if your level is enough to do it, just send it as you can walk if you see not capable.
