Jura

Description

Jura

The Jura is the mountain range west and north of the Lake of Geneva, roughly situated between Mulhouse and Lyon, shared by France and Switzerland. The Jurassic period of our geoglogical timescale derives its name of this mountain range. The mountains are much older than the Alps. Large forests, long worn ridges, rich grounds: it is a very good area for hiking. The GR5 - E2 traverses the northern part of the Jura. GR9 - E4 lie in the southern part.
