Really nice trail! We did it the other way around and we think that’s a better experience because the beauty builds up nicer. Path is rocky which looks much better than a clean path. Very little shade so apply your sunscream often. The peak in the middle is het most beautifull and gives you amazing views on both sides!! Can tell you more but that will spoil the experience.

I found the App does not edit well. It kept giving the start point as my end point with no way for quick edit. I request a refund within 30 day period and AllTrails does not honor their sales agreement on requested refund within 30 days. My friend on hike used Gala GPS and it worked better and was free.

6/22/2019 champex to Trient

TMB - Day 9 Today we started in Trient, Switzerland and Hiked to the French border and enjoyed breathtaking views of Mont Blanc and a number of other peaks and the Chamonix Valley. Visibility was excellent and we saw all of the major peaks around Argentière and Chamonix. Our path followed an old smuggler's route back into France. We hiked to Col de Balme (7,186'), the border between Switzerland and France, and ate a wonderful lunch with homemade quiche and fresh salad along with a couple of French and Belgian beers. The ascent to Col de Balme and it’s picturesque refuge that marks the border between France and Switzerland, was long, but gradual. The views to Mont Blanc and the Chamonix valley were absolutely phenomenal! We descended to our hotel, Hotel La Couronne, in Argentière, just north of Chamonix. On the way we stopped for lunch at Les Ecuries de Charamillon (an excellent restaurant) and then hiked down a trail through a small ski area called Le Tour, and then down to Telecabine Le Tour De Balme at the base of the valley and into the charming, alpine village of Argentiére at the foot of Mont Blanc to our very nice Hotel. We had a team dinner at our hotel and it’s excellent restaurant. The Hotel de la Couronne was built in 1865 with the beginning our mountaineering and modernized in subsequent years while retaining its authenticity - its the only hotel of the nineteenth century in the Chamonix valley that has not changed its activity since its construction.

Beautiful place summer and winter

This trail is ok but the first couple of kilometers is just walking up a dirt road, at a steep incline. This trail is not flat which is why it is ranked moderate. It is only suitable for some kids as the incline is steep. Still, lots of nature with some great views of the valley. In late March there was still a lot of snow to trek through as you approach the lake.
