Hike in Col de la Faucille

Hike in Col de la Faucille

On the Wednesday 24th August afternoon, we are planning an outing to La Faucille, in the French Jura. 

This will be a 6km hike to the Grand Mont Rond up to an altitude of 300m.  
Trainers (which have some grip) are advised, or walking boots/trail trainers.  Please also foresee sunglasses and sun-cream in the event of sunny weather.  It can still get a little chilly so also bring something to cover yourself.

The school will provide transportation by bus, with a limited number of places available on a first-come first-served basis. 
Every participant should make sure they have insurance, and a Schengen visa for non-Europeans.

Participants will have time after the end of lectures and before meeting at the bus, to purchase their own lunch from the CERN restaurant and coffee/snack kiosk, which sells sandwiches, panini and fruit, to bring with them.  Lunch will then be consumed during the hike.

Meeting Point:

11:00am (or shortly after) at the entrance to the Main building 500 located on the ground floor just under the Main Auditorium.

For a departure at 11:30.
