Loved this trail! We parked at Broc, missed the bus to Charmey, so hiked to the Gruyères Castle (beautiful hike and loved the castle too!). Then caught the bus from Epagny (bottom of Gruyères hill) to Charmey and hiked back to Broc. The whole hike was great, through paddocks, through the Jaunbach Gorge, around the Montsalvens lake, to the castle, up stairs. Was great!

Parked at Broc. But because we missed the bus to Charmey we hiked up to Gruyères Castle (lovely hike and great Castle!), then caught the bus from Epagny (just at the bottom of Gruyères Hill) to Charmey and walked back to Broc (past the Lake Montsalvens and through the Jaunbach Gorge). Was fantastic!

This is a long but relatively easy hike. It took us 2 hrs & 50 mins, but we move pretty fast on the level sections. This is one of the most pleasantly surprising hikes I’ve ever done because I didn’t know what was to come. The middle section through the gorge is simply amazing. I’d definitely recommend this! A flashlight or phone with a flashlight will come in handy for one very short section in the gorge.
