Xavier Thévenard trail-running area in Métabief
The Xavier Thévenard trail-running area is a superb playground for trail-runners, with exposed ridges, cliffs and 360° panoramic views of Jura's plateaus and summits, Switzerland and the Alps (including of course the majestic Mont Blanc). The grassy ridges are full of typical mountain fauna and flora, and it's not unusual to see chamois, deer, foxes and other species that live specifically in such habitats. The Mont d'Or itself is also full of life, with mountain pastures, herdsmen and their grazing animals (in summer), and foresters. Not forgetting the numerous sports enthusiasts who come to enjoy mountain biking, hiking and other activities in the great outdoors.
This is also the favourite training ground of the great trail-running champion, Xavier Thévenard.
