The starting point for many hikes
The Nyon sector is an area dedicated to hiking, you will only come across a few mountain bikes. It is the starting point for many hikes, some of which are accessible to the largest number of people.
Biodiversity is an essential factor in the development of our society.
It is no longer acceptable to ignore its existence and its interest.
But this is not easy to understand and even less apply in the field. It requires, above all, knowledge of the different "protagonists", the wild and domestic flora and fauna and the human beings who live there. Moreover, the preservation of biodiversity must co-exist in harmony with the participants and users of the mountain. This requires above all information and the acquisition of knowledge, and this is what we wish to offer you at the Pointe de Nyon.
In 2021, this area becomes a literal platform for exchanges and learning about the mountain and the protection of biodiversity.
It is also at the starting point of the Pointe de Nyon chair-lift where you can discover the "Pas de l'Aigle" and many hiking trails.
