This weekend let’s escape the heat going up in altitude: a hike next to Les Diablerets.
We’ll be at the foot of Sex Rouge (it’s a mountain…), and will stop at the the beautiful Dar waterfall. Hope it will be fresh up there.

Easy to Medium difficulty: Hike 10km, climb 560m up and down. See profile in the pictures. We'll be in the shade of the forest while climbing.

Stops at the Pont Bourquin and Lac Retaud, with gorgeous views. Then the bottom of the Dar waterfall, and follow the river back to town.

Departure from the car park next to the Piscine.

- Drive (car-share), park at the Piscine parking, or
- Train (8:50 from Lausanne, arrival at 10:16 in Diablerets)
If car pooling, we suggest each passenger contributes 7 centimes per km there and back, as well as sharing any parking costs.

Weather should be sunny; bring sunscreen, hat and lots of water. The plan is to picnic outside, probably near Lac Retaud, so bring your food and perhaps something to share. Good hiking boots are recommended.

The only costs will be getting to and from the start point.
If your plans change and you can no longer join the hike, please cancel. Others may be on a wait list.

By signing up for this hike, you accept full personal responsibility for your own safety. The organizers are not trained professional guides. Their only role is to coordinate the participants, the responsibility for safety continues to rest with each participant.
