Points of interest
From the Vignec parking located above the church, go up the main street and, at the intersection, keep to the right. 50 m after the bend, leave the tarmac for a path that climbs to the left. He cuts the road, then finds it higher up. Follow it to the right.
After the bend, go up to the right by a wide paved path; higher up, find the road (pylons) and follow it to the right for 30 m to reach a junction.
Continue to the left on the dirt road and climb for a long time in the middle of coniferous plantations. At the level of a bend (barn) leave the track for a path on the left: he finds the track again to reach the barns of Lias. Continue west, keep right at a fork, then higher, reach a fork.
Go up to the right. The trail turns east, makes a tight switchback and heads west on a small ridge. It leads to a forest track. Cross a barrier to the right and take the path below the track. After a pleasant horizontal path, reach a fork.
Continue straight ahead, crossing a chicane. First horizontal, the path climbs by making two switchbacks in the forest, then continues west. Go straight ahead until a fork: turn right.
Cross the Espiaube stream on a footbridge, then descend to the left bank. Join the road: follow it to the right as far as the village of Soulan, which you cross.
300 m after the church, go down the path on the right: it makes several switchbacks, then after crossing the stream, reaches point 3.
