Gradual ascent to the Tête de Grouvelin (panoramic view of the massif) via the Chaume Francis and the Goutte du tour. Then start your descent via the Grouvelin thatch (Grouvelin mountain inn) to the Hautes-Vannes before reaching the Rayée (view of the bouchot valley). You then walk along the forest before descending to the Bas-Rupts (Gérardmer districts) and the Chapel of Notre-Dame de la Creuse. You then return to Gérardmer via the Xetté forest and the Roche Gautier (viewpoint) before climbing to the base via the Roche du Rain (viewpoint) and the Tête du Costet.

In our practice, it is essential to respect the work of the farmers, other operators and owners who welcome us on their land:

In order to prevent the herds from escaping, close all the electric fences and do not damage them!

Also, do not disturb the herds, greet people with a friendly "hello", and of course take back all your rubbish! Don't cut routes through the meadows, don't pick at them either!
