Specific instructions for stage 3 (Plateau d’Hauteville > Lélex Monts-Jura):

The stage will cross the Haute Chaîne du Jura which is, for the most part, classified as a National Nature Reserve (RNN). The preservation of this exceptional territory depends, among other things, on your behaviour. We ask you to stay on the trails, leave your dog at home and stop your car at the parking area provided for this purpose. You will then be able to peacefully explore the countless curiosities and treasures of the Haute Chaîne du Jura.

To ensure the durability of this fragile area and the activities that take place there, it is advised that you adapt your habits and respect the regulations in force.
