Ascent Trip Report

Easy short hike on a man-made trail.

The Pic de la Hutte is in a beautiful area of the Parc des Monts-Valin ......lakes, rock faces and a network of trails leading to the near-by summits. The short easy hike is on a man-made one meter wide sidewalk with a stone chip surface and resting benches, once on the open summit area a wooden walkway leads to different observation platforms ........ In my opinion it is way-over-done and a perfect example of Government waste.
The 360 degree view from the top must be outstanding .... not on this day however ....drizzle, overcast, partial views only.

For other Park information and directions to the TH see Mont Valin TR of this date.
