A cross was erected on the summit by the inhabitants of Thoiry. The summit offers spectacular views of the Pays de Gex, Geneva, Lake Geneva, the Alps, Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, and on clear days the Chaîne des Puys.

Le Reculet was sometimes designated as the highest point of the Jura, until the elevation of the Crêt de la Neige was revised upwards to 1720 m instead of 1717.6 m.
