The limestone massif of Bornes does not conceal many walks for ski touring, much less than its neighbor of the Aravis, here it is rather the domain of Nordic skiing as the plateau Glières, however it offers some pretty interesting bamboo especially when the conditions encourage caution. Show more

The starting point is reached via the 'Route de Puze'. There are grand views from the summit area at Rochers de Leschaux, and the Grotte de la Glaciere. However, some sections of the trail are difficult and challenging. In particular, the descent from the summit (Rochers de Leschaux) to Solaison (where all the tourists park) offers difficulties. From Solaison, the trail up to the Grotte de la Glaciere has hazards: deadfall blocks the trail & x-narrow muddy, slippery tracks offering a "shortcut" to the bottom of a deep ravine. The rest of the ascent to the Grotte is steep and challenging, requiring a rope for assistance over a couple of the most difficult sections. Show more
