At almost 2000 meters above sea level, between the Robert lakes and the Sitre lake, the Crozet lake is an undeniable jewel of the Belledonne massif, unmissable when staying on the Grenoble or Chambéry side. Surrounded by the resorts of Chamrousse, Le Collet d'Allevard and Les Sept Laux, it overlooks the Grésivaudan valley like a vast infinity pool. The site is also historic. Inventor of white coal in the 19th century, Aristide Bergès conducted many experiments on hydroelectric power on Lac du Crozet. Owner of a paper mill in Lancey, he carried out numerous adjustments on the lake and its tributaries in order to regulate and stabilize the flow. The Crozet lake site is also classified for the richness of its biodiversity: we come across marmots, ibex, chamois, and many bird species including the emblematic black grouse. The object of many hikes, the lake also attracts mountain bikers, fishermen, and rock-climbers who take on the rock split above the Crozet eye. A three-quarter hour walk from the lake is a refuge for hikers and mountain bikers.
The Crozet lake is a popular destination for hikers. One of the most classic circuits is the one that starts from Pré Raymond, at an altitude of around 1,400 meters. Much of the trail is undergrowth. The hike consists of a round trip. It takes in all within 4 hours. It is possible to envisage a morning departure and a picnic by the lake before going down again in the afternoon. The hike of Crozet Lake by Pré Raymond is a little over 9 km away. When arriving at the lake, good walkers can push to Lac du Loup. You should know that in season, the hike to Lac du Crozet is very busy, and the path narrow. It is therefore preferable to leave very early in the day to enjoy more tranquility. The landscapes crossed are varied: laces in the forest with more mineral decorations, and steep slopes with pleasant flat passages on alpine lawns crossed by streams.Read more
