The hike starts with a tour in the nice old town and castle of Estavayer-le-Lac, then goes in direction of the lake. After the harbour the path leaves the city and goes into the forest along the lake. Several small paths allow to get closer to the lake and are equipped with picnic and observation areas. The view on the lake Neuchâtel and the Jura mountains is beautiful, and the patient ones will be rewarded by spotting wildlife! When arriving at Cheyres the path climbs across the wineyards and along the creek Rochaudon, then goes across the fields to the nice small village of Châbles FR, then to Châtillon FR and arrives finally back to Estavayer-le-Lac.
