Hike to La Bâtiaz Castle in Martigny

Rate this Adventure 3.6 miles 675 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by Kelley Dodge

Hike to an old castle and get incredible vantage points of the valley below! 

Starting in the Martigny town center, the trailhead is easy to find. Follow Rue de la Bâtiaz across La Dranse Rive and after about two blocks you will see signs to Chemin du Château, the "path to the castle."

A relatively easy hike, switchbacks wind through vineyards on the mountainside for 1.8 miles before reaching La Bâtiaz at the summit. 

La Bâtiaz offers stunning vantage points of the Martigny valley below as well as the towering peaks nearby. 

This trail is a hidden gem, used almost exclusively by locals. It is definitely worth a quick stop if you're staying in the area or just passing through.
