The resort of Les Orres

A short walk of 30 minutes to discover the resort of Les Orres in the Hautes-Alpes

This walk connects the resort of Les Orres 1650 (the center of the resort) to the resort of Les Orres1800 (Bois Méan) by a pleasant pedestrian path. There is nothing really difficult, the road is always tarred. We return by the same way. If you wish it you can continue to walk by borrowing the numerous paths of hikes which leave the station.
