The cross country ski route crosses the highlands of the French Jura region from near Belfort along the Swiss border towards Geneva. Roughly half of the trail is forested. There are many inns along the trek. Check out the 80 km La Forestiere haul near Les Rousses and Lamourra.

Overall, Jura Trail is the 9th most popular cross country ski area of all 19 Nordic ski destinations in France.
