Rambling, hiking and moutain biking


To go green and take a deep breath of fresh air, the Haut-Doubs is full of hiking trails to be explored on foot or by bike. Offering wonderful mountain views, they truly are the ideal playground for your regular dose of nature!
Along a river, around a village, in the middle of a forest, below a waterfall or on mountain tops, follow the signposted routes marking out the territory to discover its rich natural heritage. Its breath-taking landscapes in the heart of a preserved ecosystem blend perfectly with the local culture. With over 700 kilometres (435 miles) of paths, tracks along with trails, you are spoilt for choice! The wide panel of terrains and routes in this region makes it possible to go on family walks as well as sporting hikes.

Haut-Doubs is a densely wooded area between lakes and mountains: it is therefore a natural choice for mountain biking! Whether you prefer to ride on stony paths, on ridges or in the undergrowth, a vast selection of trails will satisfy your every need. Alone, with family or friends, more than 170 kilometres (105 miles) of paths of different distances and gradients are maintained as well as marked out to offer you numerous hikes in the heart of this preserved scenery.

Métabief, known for its Alpine ski resort in winter, is also worth visiting in summer for its mountain bike trails. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, whether you like speed or a gentler slope, 25 kilometres (15 miles) of downhill mountain biking for all levels await you there! If you want to be accompanied by someone knowing the nature of the surrounding Jura Mountains, hiking guides will be delighted to enlighten you on foot or by bike about the fauna, flora, geology and legends constituting all the richness of the Haut-Doubs.
