The Col du Coq road repairs 29th June 2019

Following a landslide on the night of 10 December 2017 which covered the Route du col du Coq with 3,000 m³ of debris, and caused 50 metres of the road to be invaded by the Ruisseau de l’Orme, the Col du Coq is currently inaccessible from the St Pierre de Chartreuse side, although it remains accessible from the east. The good news is that the task of rebuilding the road began on June 10th 2019, but it is unlikely to be reopened before the late summer. See the July 2019 municipal newsletter for the latest official information.

The closure obviously makes access to the start of the three walks starting from the col du Coq difficult if staying in or around St. Pierre de Chartreuse, although access is still available from Perquelin, which requires a longer day.

Further news will be provided when available from the municipality.
