Le Col de Croix (de Reculaz) pass

    La Chapelle-d'Abondance

    This pass, also known as the Reculaz pass, is part of the series of passages north of Châtel between Chablais Switzerland and France. This separates the Pointe du Mouët and the Tête du Tronchet. Several paths get there.

    South-west side it is a wide track coming from the chalets of Mouët. This track descends in twists to the northeast on the Swiss side towards Plan du Croix.

    From the west descends the fairly steep path that ends the ridges of Mouët on this side.

    To the east, several routes, either on a path on the ridge, or further down by a wide track, head towards the Tête du Tronchet and the Tour de Don.
