GTJ – Route of Grand Tour De Jura

5 May, 2017

The GTJ is a strictly French route but access from Switzerland is easy and c. Hotevenient. Train from London is fast to Paris and you go through  frowalking upland farm  to Geneva.  A train leaves Geneva every  half an hour to get you to St Cergue, a pleasant mountain village with hotels and cafes.

From St Cergue its upwards and westwards to La Cure on the French border.  Following Swiss walk signs is beautifully simple as you go through easy walking upland farms and Mt Dole.
In france you pick up the GR5 into Les Rousses – an ugly town serving sky holidaying and desperately plain without snow. The commune is working hard to improve the spring, autumn and summer demands.  The fort and outdoor adventure park are worth a visit.

We ate fondue – not my favourite and not as good as last year in nearby Morez.  Hotel was keen to serve ir so we had it.
