A looping route starting from Le Noirmont
"A friend and I met up in Le Noirmont. It was autumn and our aim was to rise above the clouds. The sun, which we hadn't seen for the last ten days, was there to greet us! The hike began just over the railway tracks. We climbed up a small hill on a gentle slope to Le Peu-Péquignot, where we took a short break just to enjoy a refreshing drink. It is a wonderful place with picturesque views of fir trees and horses. We continued to Le Peuchapatte, a lovely hamlet (apparently the highest in the Jura) with typical farms, before reaching Les Breuleux. From there, a little tired because of our lack of exercise, we took the train back towards Le Noirmont. It was a pleasure to enjoy some fresh air on these uplands."
