Ourtieres - The Pleiades
Minimum altitude: 828 m
Maximum altitude: 1,385 m
Difficulty level: T1
Elevation +/-: 568 m
Approximate walking time: 2h45
To get there : A9 motorway to Vevey. Then take the direction of Saint-Légier- La Chiésaz, Blonay and finally Les Chevalleyres.
The chosen route begins at the "traffic ban" sign. Two options are then available to you at this point: either take the road, or take the footpath that goes up to the right and joins the road higher up.
After 4 or 5 switchbacks, I reached the "Pré Cagnard" mountain pasture to join the "Ourtières" pasture. Arrived at a place called "Les Conversions" I turned right and I climbed the Châ to go in the direction of the Pléiades. When I got to the level of the road, I had to turn right into the little valley and I went straight down to Pré Cagnard. In the descent, hiking poles are useful!
