you will walk in the vineyards in the background
We started the hike along the “bisses” or Suonen in German in St. Léonard. The bisses are small water channels built along the mountains in order to water the hills. On this walk you will find them in the vinyards.
In St. Léonard you start the walk in the part of Uvrier. Coming from the underground lake you walk towards Sion until you hit the river coming down the hill. There you will find the hiking paths signs.
After leaving St. Léonard the path takes you up quite steeply through the vinyards until you reach the water channel. You then follow the water channel until you end up above Sion. There are a couple of places where you can go down to Sion. Along the way you enjoy superb views on the Rhone valley and the surrounding mountains. Somewhere along the path there are some vines of old species. You will see information about it hanging there. Unfortunately not in English though.
The hike takes about 2,5 hours and you could do the hike the other way round. Check out my
St. Léonard page for more information.
