As part of the Randos Paysannes, this stage begins with a crossing of the Val d'Ainan, a valley dotted with hamlets with sometimes imposing buildings. The path rises in the woods to arrive at the Lac de St Sixte: here, the break is compulsory!

Because the climb is not over ...
The Savaré forest and the Chartreux pond mark the highlight of the day, which ends with a long and pleasant descent on the southern slope of the Grand Vivier, which plunges into the Voironnais basin.
