Panoramic trek of medium difficulty starting out at the top of the « Leysin-Tête d’Aï » chairlift. Descent via the Mayen refuge down to the Chamois quarry. Warning : certain stretches of the trail are also used by skiers.

This trail starts from the top of the "Leysin-Tête d'Aï" chairlift.

The path takes you to the Mayen refuge after about 10 minutes and here you should take time to taste one of their specialities while admiring the fabulous panorama. Afterwards, the track goes downhill at a gentle pace all the way to the Chamois quarry.

Be careful on the descent as part of the route is right on the piste and can be very slippery.
