Hauterive Abbey


Minimum altitude: 601 m

Maximum altitude: 705m

Difficulty level: T1

Ascent: 227m

Descent: 218m

Approximate walking time: 2h15

To get there: A12 motorway. Exit n° 5 Rossens. In the center of the village of Rossens turn left towards Corpataux and then towards Arconciel.


Where to park: Free parking spaces at both ends of the bridge.  

The route begins to the left of the house opposite the car park. Go down to the Sarine and follow it to the abbey. Note that there is a somewhat dangerous passage directly above a cliff; without that, the route does not present any major difficulty. Arrived at the abbey, to make the loop, you will have to cross the bridge over the Sarine and go up on the other side. On this section, the road that crosses the Bois de la Souche runs along the top of the cliffs;  so be careful!

In order to avoid following the cantonal road, at a place called "En Peney", I went back slightly on the footpath and I finally arrived at the second car park before crossing the bridge.
