"Chapel Saint-Claude and Belvedere Lake." This easy loop takes the route of the Horn to reach Chapelle Mijoux and chapel Saint Claude, built in 1705. Formerly called "Gagelins Chapel", this place of worship was founded and endowed by Claude Belot de Villette, canon of the church metropolitan, who owned a domain in the hamlet. The sanctuary was provided with a chaplain who lived until 1820. It houses an altarpiece altar of the eighteenth century. At the bend of a path it is possible to cross a "wild boar", the craftsman who peels the trunks of spruce to make the straps that surround the Mont d'Or cheeses. Variant (round trip 2.5 km): From Chapelle Mijoux, a link leads to Belvedere du Lac, which offers a view of the Fontaine Ronde valley and Saint-Point lake.Show more
