A 6 km from Saint-Laurent-en-Grandvaux the D 437 until Thevenins and 200 m after the church, right by the road that leads to the Domaine du Bugnon.

Parking: Domaine du Bugnon.


Since the large chalet Domaine du Bugnon behind you, turn right along the white path. It crosses through woods and meadows alternate. Continue straight until you get on cylindrical metal rods into the ground: it is a Canadian crossing (Vehicles can pass, but not livestock Thus, the cows are well guarded.!).

Before the cross, make a small return on the grassy path to the left, to a small shed (built following the 1999 storm, this little building was used to house a pump timber for watering and water prevent their being damaged). Take time to admire the bog around before you retrace your steps, and continue left on the white path.

A little further out of the forest, you come out onto a large meadow at Rquai Bridge. Be careful along the barbed wire left, you will discover a small, discreet opening and into the meadow.

Follow the path grassy still visible, then walk along the white stones. You then arrive at the entrance of a new pre helmed by period of an electrical wire that you will take care to replace if necessary. Continue towards the little wooden bridge that allows to cross the river.

Continue straight up the charrière, lined with trees. Arriving on another road, Way of the tram, go left and walk admiring the landscape. You have a view on the whole wetland.

Continue to follow this landscaped path that leads you to the hamlet of Thevenins (The former cheese right was created in 1905. Since 2017, the cooperative society Lac-des-Rouges-Truites merged with St. Peter cooperatively to create the cooperative Country Grandvallier. Their milk together, 97% of the milk for the manufacture of the County, is transformed into a new cheese factory building in Saint-Laurent-en-Grandvaux.)

In the first attack dwellings, take the small road on the left that goes between some houses. Since La Gare, old station of the tram, get off the road through the valley to reach the Domaine du Bugnon.
