Passarelle de la Grande Combe

Due to erosion and the possibility of rock-falls along the original path, the authorities have erected a huge (133m long) suspension bridge to by-pass the danger area.  This has re-opened a wonderful walk from La Luette along the far side of the valley from the main road, where any number of plants and butterflies can be observed, including the quite rare Apollo butterfly.  It’s also meant to be a mountain biking route, but with many undulations and some very narrow ledges, one with chains (see pic), it’s a very fit and brave biker who tackles it !
