Topo/step by step:
Start the walk with a nice climb to reach the cross of the gilts. The superb panorama of the lake is the reward, don't forget to look back! Take the time to sit down (a bench awaits you there) and enjoy. Then you continue in the woods, then by the small roads also offering beautiful points of view on the surrounding hills. At the cemetery, you take the chemin du sabot de la sour, passes in front of the small village church and allows you to go back up to the stadium.
