Route Description for The Water Path
After taking the cable car up to the starting point of the hike, take some time to appreciate the beautifully scenic views of the Valais Alps. From here, the trail will begin to descend past the Pointe de la Plaine Morte, before looping around Lac de Huiton.
From here, you will continue the long descent into the valley to Icogne, before making your way to the Bisse de Lens viewpoint. From there, the trail bends to the northeast, eventually taking you into the endpoint of the route in Chermignon-d’en-Bas
