At Mont-Mourex top, we note a 145m circumference and 47m diameter stone circle on the ground.  In the past the site could have been dedicated to the sun cult.  The upright monolith in the center was brought back recently.

From the Mont parking (A), to Vesancy through a large path going down.  Coming to a ‘’Bois sous Roche’’ locality, go to your right.  A short climb takes you to ‘’Carrefour des Chasseurs’’ (C).  Turn right to Mont-Mourex.  After the gate, turn left and onto the Mont(D) marked by an upright monolith.   Then follow the alpine landmark to catch up an orientation table (E) then down to the departure parking.
