Geocache Description:

Dressée à 1220 m la croix des Couloirs domine le village des Bouchoux. Un site hors pair qui offre une vision imprenable sur le Jura méridional avec ses crêts et ses plateaux.


Vers l’Ouest, par beau temps, la vue se perd sur les contreforts lointains du Maconnais et la vallée de la Saône. Côté Est, il suffit de franchir la barrière de végétation pour embrasser du regard l’ensemble de la Haute Chaine du Jura qui s’étire toute proche.
Un lieu où il fait bon se laisser aller à une méditation contemplative, bercé par le tintement des sonnailles et les rumeurs lointaines du village.
L’accès le plus direct se fait depuis les fermes de Chaudezembre (N46°17.650 - E05°50.200) d’où part un sentier balisé qui monte tranquillement dans les pâtures.
Les plus courageux partiront du village des Bouchoux où un autre itinéraire balisé longe d’abord les prairies avant d’entamer une montée assez raide dans le sous-bois pour finir sur l’arête rocailleuse (250m d’ascension). Voir cartes dans la galerie photos

Built to 1220 m altitude, the cross of "les Couloirs" overlooking the village of Bouchoux. An outstanding site that offers a breathtaking view of the southern Jura with its crests and plateaus.

Westward, in good weather, the view is lost on distant foothills of Macon and the valley of the Saône. East side, just cross the barrier of vegetation sweeping view across the High Jura chain that stretches nearby.
A place where it is good to indulge in a contemplative meditation, listening to the tinkling of bells and distant rumors of the village.
The most direct access is from farms Chaudezembre (N46° 17.650' - E5° 50.200') from where a marked trail that goes up quietly in the pasture. (15 min.)
The bravest can start from the village of Bouchoux and follow another signposted route along the meadows before beginning a steep climb in the woods to finish on the rocky ridge (250m ascent). See also maps in the gallery.
