1 Crêt de la Neige and Reculet
The most physically challenging
To reach the highest summits of the Jura Mountains, the Reculet (1,718m) and its close neighbour, the Crêt de la Neige (1,720m), you'll have to be prepared to tackle an elevation gain of 950 metres.
The reward once you reach the top is worth every effort. Find a spot to sit down, catch your breath, and gaze at the jagged peaks of the Alps and the legendary Mont Blanc.
This hike in the heart of a nature reserve also comes with the possible surprise of encountering a herd of chamois.
Note that you can also take the gondola lift to substantially reduce your uphill effort, which makes this hike accessible to just about anyone.
