Note: this walk will take you across part of the Essert ski area; it is advisable not to walk on the ski slopes. You can reach this signposted walking route by taking Essert cable cable car (please purchase a one-way ticket). The starting point of the walk is to the right of the cable car's top station, below Petit Fremoux button lift. Head for Essert chalets then climb towards the forest and walk alongside it until you reach the ridge. Follow the line of the ridge being careful not to get too close to the edge until you reach the transmitters. Head down by the same route back to the cable car and continue on your walk by keeping Essert restaurant below you. Carry on towards La Corne button lift and cross the slope where you see the Lac button lift and head for Brion chalets. Carry on downhill towards Mon Logis and Bothiay chalets.
