Under Le Pas de la Ville in Gresse-en-Vercors

A beautiful hike in the Vercors above Gresse-en-Vercors

The departure of the hike is easy to find, the path is well indicated. The hike starts in Gresse-en-Vercors and ends in "Sous le Pas de la Ville" (500 meters of difference in altitude). Count 1h20 to reach "Sous le Pas de la Ville", add 50 minutes if you want to go to the "Pas de la Ville" a little higher. There is no real end since this hike does not go to the top. It is a nice hike to discover the Vercors.
