This trail passes through two Nature Parks, the Doubs and the Chasseral Parks, from the Franches-Montanges to the summit of Mont-Soleil. On the way, admire the sparkling water of the Étang de la Gruère.

This loop of nearly 40 km crosses the two regional nature parks, the Parc du Doubs and the Parc Chasseral, from the Franches-Montagnes to the summit of Mont-Soleil. Once arrived at Mont-Soleil, the route follows the Monts trail to Mont-Crosin. To rest, you can put your foot down and read the educational panels on renewable energies that line this section of the route. Continuing on, the cyclist has the opportunity to admire the shining waters of the Gruère pond. This route also crosses the wooded pastures, typical landscapes of the Jura Arc.
