This alternative route was lovely. Taking the chairlift up saved us climbing up the hill and the weather is quite hot and a little humid. The original path is closed due to development works (constructing a new chairlift). Dosson was busy with day hikers and mountain bike riders. The cafe was open, great facilities to eat lunch on the deck and go to the bathrooms.
