On the windy top of the Pic de l’Aigle, the landscape is yours to admire. To the west, the two main plateaus that mark the start of the Jura’s relief stretch out before you. The rocky ledge where the Pic de l’Aigle culminates and the lake region mark a break with the relief’s third plateau which is located to the east and gives way to the folded structures of the Jura’s high valleys.

From the PIC DE L’AIGLE PARKING LOT (PARKING DU PIC DE L’AIGLE), a rocky trail (yellow waymarking) ascends northwards to the Foot of the Peak through beautiful dry grasslands. Climb 200 metres up a steep path with steps and rails, before exiting onto the Pic de l’Aigle. Return the same way.

Practical informations

Recommendations: Take care, in the winter the ascent to the Pic de l’Aigle can be slippery due to ice.

Wild flowers are beautiful, they may be rare and protected and often wilt quickly. Do not pick them! They will delight the next hikers.
