Located near the Torrent du Gleysin, the Forge and Moulins de Pinsot form an excellent walking base around 7 Laux. An original idea for a family outing for the summer to discover the world of blacksmiths of yesteryear and that of millers. During this visit, young and old were introduced to the gestures of the craftsmen of yesteryear, as well as the history of blacksmithing and that of the Pays d’Allevard, whose activity was based on iron mines.
A cultural walk
During this visit, it is a real cultural walk that awaits you at the forge and the mills of Pinsot. The Iron Trail takes you from the village of Pinsot and invites you to go back in time through 13 stages in the forest during which the lucky ones could find iron ore or quartz.
This cultural walk, which lasts about 2 hours and 30 minutes and allows you to travel 4 km, will be the perfect opportunity to organize a family hike around the iron trade.
