Jura Route Day 8: Saint Hippolyte -> Luisans

We begin the day with a hard 400 meter climb out of Saint Hippolyte, but then things even out and the remaining short climbs will all be easy in comparison.

And at every turn the cows will be rooting you on, or at least lifting their head to notice your heavy breathing!

The French are much harder to spot. If it’s summer, then you may see them working in their gardens. In autumn, hunters may appear with a rabbit or even a wild boar ! But these country folk seldom see tourists, so a wave in your direction is a generous acknowledgement.

You’ll see lots of forests, hear the murmur of the chainsaws and count numerous lumberyards. Forestry employs many in this region, as does cabinet-making.

With the exception of Charquemont (population 2,500), the towns that we pass through today will never have more than a few hundred inhabitants and so you may be surprised to find a great little auberge in the town of Luisans with jacuzzi, sauna and traditional dishes done with a gourmet flair.
