You will come across many outdoor sports enthusiasts on this route. First of all the kayakers from the base of Argentière la Bessée are at the meeting point at the start. Then the climbers via the climbing site and the via ferrata de l'Horloge. Trails for traileurs and hikers follow: ascent to Les Combettes then the magnificent single of the Bois de la Pignée (watch out for mountain bikes that may descend) which takes you to the highest point of the route: Les Têtes (2044m). Breathtaking 360° panorama. Do you have some breath left to go down to La Pousterle? You have to continue to the Fournel river, which is very popular with novice canyoners. A large descending crossing allows you to reach the Plan Léothaud district where you will have to follow the GR to reach the leisure centre afterwards.

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

In order that the herds don't escape, close all the fences well
Bring back all your garbage,
Don't cut routes through the meadows.
