From the center of town, follow the trail down to Montsalvens Lake. Walk along the lake to Châtel-sur-Montsalvens Dam, the first Arch Dam of Europe, built in 1921. Follow the trail through the magnificent Jogne Gorges, which have remained relatively wild. Here the trail crosses and recrosses the river several times, going through tunnels and over bridges. Closed in winter, the numerous bridges and tunnels are a testament how difficult it is to access the area. The route eventually leaves the gorges and follows the main road to Broc with beautiful views of Lake Gruyères along the way. At the entrance of the village, the route goes by several homes before crossing pastures to Notre-Dame des Marches chapel, destination of a major pilgrimage. The trail then drops back to the Sarine and crosses the Pont qui Branle (wobbling bride), before climbing to the remarkably well-preserved, medieval village of Gruyères.
