A bit of history
The Gazon Vert was build as a refuge for skiers from the Mulhouse region, skiing near the Perches mountain pass. It was destroyed in 1944 after being a hide out for members of the french resistance. The lodge was first renovated in 1990 by volonteers from Mulhouse and since then converted to fulfil the principles of the Hautes Vosges Randonnées network.
