Hiking very nice and relatively accessible to all. Personally I prefer to do it in the opposite direction to that proposed to finish on the Green Lake.

Five stars for the superb views of not only Mt Blanc but also les Fiz and les Aravis. The route takes two hours of moderate hiking on mountain track roads. Park by main leisure buildings beyond Plaine Joux (don’t drive to Lac Vert parking) and take the steep uphill Northern segment first. You then have a leisurely walk South downhill to the Lac Vert. The Lac itself is a small, beautiful gem and a place to linger.

Most of this this trail is a 4x4 track, but has some of the best views of the Mont Blanc! Take the drive all the way up to Pleine Joux, and start/end the hike near the restaurants. The trial is 50% exposed under the sun, and 50% in the trees to cool down. Would definitely come up here again!

Easy route to follow, mostly gravel roads. Nice views at the top and on the way back down following ski slopes, the descent was quite tricky in parts due to the gradient.
