From La Chaux-de-Fonds, we are caught cold by the climb up Pouillerel, the rewarding panoramic mountain NW of the watch metropolis. We then follow the ridge to the Ferme Modèle, which is usually also open to the public. From there we ride along the edge of the gorge to the Doubs, where a magnificent view of Lac de Moron awaits us at the Roches de Moron. Via Les Planchettes we descend into the gorge, where we take a forest path to the upper end of Lac de Moron. There we also find the "Saut du Doubs", the "biggest waterfall in France". Shortly afterwards, another picturesque Doubs lake, the Lac des Brenets, accompanies us on the way towards Les Brenets - the Doubs tributary into this lake is already in France. Now there is another climb over the foothills of the Pouillerel over to the (possible) stage stop Le Locle.
