This is a beautiful walk, accessible to all, and offering exceptional views of Salanfe, the surrounding peaks, the lake and the dam. The Discovery Trail brochure is on sale at the Inn.

From the Inn, head in the direction of Susanfe pass, taking the former jeep track. Half-way between the inn and the other end of the lake, close to a fountain, you will find the foundations of the old mountain chalets (1) which were flooded when the dam was inaugurated. At the end of the lake, you will discover a spectacular delta (2), with an overhanging glacier known as the Glacier Noir (Black Glacier). From there, head upwards again in the direction of Ottans (3). The trail will bring you Salanfe dam, a gravity dam installed in 1952.
