  • Marked route Marked
  • Itinerary type ALLER_ITINERANCE
  • Precision markings Specific markings "Chemin du Petit Bonheur".
  • Delicate passage Technical difficulty: The path of the Petit Bonheur does not present any technical difficulty, because it borrows mainly a large track driveable. Some places may be a problem for beginners, but these are only very short passages that do not require long portage. Physical difficulty: The path of the Petit Bonheur is easier in the direction of Bonneval-sur-Arc - Modane because the route is predominantly descending and has little elevation gain. Traveled in its entirety the distance is still important. On the other hand borrowed by sections, the path of the Petit Bonheur offers distances of the order of 2km to 9km between the villages. It's ideal for making a la carte steps!
