vicino Tunel Gd. St. Bernard, Canton du Valais (Switzerland)

From the parking in front of the (no longer working) restaurant Bourg St-Bernard, go down some meters towards the lake. Before the tunnel, take a turn to the left, following the yellow signs. You'll reach the Via Francigena, a pilgrim way with good signposts. You follow until a small house where the VF goes left but you stay straight and go up on the Combe de Drône. Don't miss the signs on a stone showing to the left to Chemin des Chevaux (we missed it, you'll see it clearly on the track).
Up the Chemin des Chevaux, at times very narrow, at times hardly visible because of stone avalanches. We found the first snow and some of this way was very difficult and limit dangerous.
You reach Col des Chevaux, from the an easy enough way down to the Col du Grand St-Bernard and an from there (back along the VF) and easy enough back down to Bourg St-Bernard.
Walked in early September 2017 with first snow starting around 2'500m
