Frog Lake hiking on the Bicknell Trail

Sport, Pedestrian sports, Hiking itinerary in Tende
  • This path on the left bank of the Fontanalba torrent links Casterino to the Lac des Grenouilles and offers a beautiful walk.

    The first part is a little steep, but you eventually reach marker 390 through pastures and meadows, where the trail ends. The view of the east face of Mont Bego is breathtaking, with herds of chamois very often to be seen in June-July, and dozens of marmots roaming the meadows around the lower cow pasture.
    For the return journey, you can follow the same path or choose to make a loop by taking the old military track that leads to Castérino (the walking time is the same as for the Bicknell path), at marker 390.
    Tourism info: Marmots, chamois, ibex... Let the silence settle in and watch, it's teeming with life!
