Map and points of interest

Let's go


This is a very accessible blue itinerary mainly following forest paths. The first track leads to the monolith and includes a slightly technical uphill section where you may have to walk for a few metres. But you'll have fun on the superb trail waiting for you at the top!
The monolith is a fairly straight, vertical structure of cargneule rock rising to 93 metres above the ground. The dolomitic limestone formation is dense and hard enough to have resisted the erosion that has affected the rest of the site, cleaning it of the other, less robust rock that once surrounded the monolith.

Departs from: Plan de la Croix or Val Cenis Sardières, at the junction on the road leading to the Sardières monolith.

Period of opening

From 01/05 to 01/11.
