Perhaps you will meet on your way a tree which received a "rainbow shot" ... Enjoy a superb panorama over the village from the Crête de la Sage. A great reward after the effort of the climb!

If you see a tree that has no leaves for no apparent reason ... its leaves are dry on one side while the tree is green on the other. It is because he received a "rainbow shot" according to the people of Valdain ...
Departing from St Bueil, after the long climb in the forest by the Chemin des Mulets to reach the Crête de la Sauge crossroads, you will enjoy a magnificent view of the village. Great reward after the effort!
Arriving at the level of the crest of the sage, you fall on the hilly plateau of Velanne, whose name comes from the Latin "nux abellana" meaning hazelnut.
Then go to the Sacré Coeur. It is worth the detour with its tower barely emerging above the pines.
