Goleon Lake and Hut

With incredible views of the mountains, the Goléon Lake hike is absolutely handsome, wildlife and alpine flowers will be waiting for you!

 

ITINERARY
Follow the dirt track from Les Hières and cross the lovely hamlet of Valfroide, where many houses still have stone roofs. Then follow the path up along the right-hand bank of the Maurian mountain stream. The path gently climbs through a large field and then becomes gradually steeper over the rock sill. You’ll have then to continue zigzaging. After skirting round some rocky outcrops, you’ll reach the top of the rock sill, which marks the beginning of the valley sheltering the lake and the refuge of Goléon. You then join the refuge (on your left) in a few minutes, in the alpine pastures. If you feel like it, you can continue your walk along the lake on the left side, spectacular panorama guaranteed !

 

Overtures :

From May to October, depending on weather and snow conditions.
