About : Trail Running – The Aiguillon’s loop
Starting from the village hall in La Grave, you will have a glimpse of the atmosphere reigning in this mountain village to then follow a path running up the refreshing river Romanche in a forest of larch before entering Villar d'Arène. After running in the streets of the village you will gain height reaching Pontet lake where you will enjoy an overview of the valley. Afterward a pleasant track will lead you to the Aiguillon pass and you will only have to run down on the other side of the hill towards Valfroide. Crossing several hamlets of La Grave, the path will lead you back to your starting point fairly rapidly.
