One of the best trail around Grenoble !
Follow the GR9 signs, it starts with a couple of stairs then goes into a fast singletrack with loads of switchbacks.
At the bottom your can link with Bois du Mollard or Bec du Corbeau.

Caution : This trail is labelled GR (Grande randonnée), so there will be a lot of hikers during the summer and sunny weekends : adapt your speed, you're not alone.

Access Info

Climb the road to the fort from the village of Sappey en Chartreuse. There is also a bus service

Minor erosion (trail braiding, small ruts developing, brake bumps) because of last week's storms

Very wet in the end but still awesome. When wet the rocks at the top can be slippery.

 Easy access by road and fast and nice downhill... It's an easy trail except first stairs and turns. Enjoy the point of view on top of Grenoble !
