Parc naturel régional Jura vaudois - A lovely circle hike leading from the lakeside village of Le Pont to the summit of the mountain Dent de Vaulion and return to Le Pont via Pétra Félix.

From the lake shore of the Lac de Joux you will ascend quickly to the Petite Dent then the restaurant and then finally to the top of the Dent de Vaulion (1’483 m). You will be rewarded for your efforts with the stunning views of the Vallée de Joux, the Alps and neighboring France.
The hike continues towards Pétra Félix. After going through a beautiful forest you reach the pastures looking down upon the village of Le Pont where you finish your hike.
