Best period: during the entire opening of the access road to the dam
Difficulty : T1
Start the ride on the left bank of the dam crossing the dam wall and then following the path along the dam. Arriving at the bottom of the dam, before going back down, do not miss to discover the impressive mountain stream that springs in the middle of the wall of rocks. Once you are at the foot of the dam, you have plenty of places to hold a picnic or grill. For the return, do not borrow the road along the right bank of the dam, but the route “tour du lac” which runs along the Bisse de Sion.
