Bric Bouchet (Abriès)

Mountain trail accessible in summer and autumn. From Le Roux d'Abriès take direction Valpréveyre.

From Valpréveyre, the landscape encountered on the way up the Bouchet valley is varied. The greenish coloured, hard rocks, resistant to erosion, of which the Bric Bouchet itself is one, appear embedded in the softer grey coloured rocks.

The trail offers a route through calcshist and other rocks of the alpine cean floor.

The rocks and minerals seen retrace an eventful history with one section at a depth of more than 40km followed by a return to the surface...

Organised trips in summer.
