road access

Parking on asphalt about 2.5 km up east from the town center of Villard-de-Lans, with access to hiking trails up to Col de l'Arc to the NE and Cabane Roybon and Col Vert to the SE.

Useful for making a loop around the trail "le sentier du balcon Est" with great views across the Grenoble / Gresse / Drac valley to the mountains of the Oisans and Grandes Rousses and Mont Blanc -- which might include going to the summit of the dramatic Roc Cornafion peak. Or climb the south ridge / arete sud of the Roc Cornafion.

There is a larger parking area on asphalt about 60m south from this Parking, but less useful for hiking access.

Col de l'Arc trail goes E + NE directly from Parking.
Col Vert trail is reached by first walking on asphalt road SSW 200m from parking.

Grenoble -> Saint-Nizier-du-Moucherotte -> Lans en Vercors . . .
but at (N45.1265 E5.5955) just E before reaching village center of Lans en Vercors, turn off Left and go about 5km SW then S on "le Vielle Route" to (N45.0774 E5.5738). Turn Left (SW) and up steep 0.7km to Parking.
