Chaux des Crotenay

23,28 km cycling route from Chaux des Crotenay to Mouthe

The little bridge over the Saine River after the village of Montliboz offers a lovely view of the Langouette Gorges, a little before you arrive at Les Planches-en-Montagne. Although tucked away, these gorges prove impressive, water having dramatically sculpted the rocks here down the millennia. The cycle route continues beside the Saine to Foncine-le-Bas, then you tackle the upper village of the same name. Taking on the Châtelblanc climb, you enter the area of Haut-Doubs, characterized by wide-open landscapes. Arriving at Mouthe, the Jura’s Mont d'Or mountain by the Franco-Swiss border is often clear to see. For the inquisitive, a short detour leads you to the source of the Doubs River, its beautiful, peaceful setting well worth the detour.
