Northern Alps, Col du Tra (73), 26 June, 2021
Col du Tra, Saturday 26 June 2021
This year we will meet in the centre of Notre Dame du Pie, in Savoie with the Col du Tra, in the canton of Moutiers, close by. For more information about the place see coeurdetarantaise-tourisme.com
We can make a group start from the car park of the Metaux-speciaux factory in Pombliere-Saint Marcel.
-The Col du Tra can be arrived at directly by the ‘montée des plaines’ : 12km long with 650m of climbing and 27 hairpins, amongst forests and mountain pastures.
- Another route from the factory car park : take the cycle path above the Tunnel du Siaix, follow the River Isere to Centron, and continue to Villette and Aime. From there take the road to La Plagne, and as the road starts to climb, take the direction Montalbert Longefoy, then Notre Dame.
-For the mountainbikers, starting from the Col du Tra, it’s possible to climb to Mont Jovet, the high point of the village, at 2558m. From the Jovet refuge, on good tracks, it’s possible to make a circuit via the Col des Cornes (2063m), Col du Jovet (2404m), Col du Lac (2359m) and the Pas des Brebis (2359m).
As usual, from 10.00 we’ll await you for a friendly drink and some local products. At 11.30 the Lady Mayor, departmental councillor, will honour us with her presence.
Notre Dame du Pré has a little campsite at the climbing rock of Glaisy. Food available at the La Fruitiere grocery in the village centre.
