The song of the tits calls out to you the moment you enter the forest, at the top of the Pont des Chèvres chairlift. Interspersed with high-altitude clearings, the first part of your journey is so serene you almost forget you're going uphill. Cross through the Revet forest under the watchful eye of La Turra fort, perched at an altitude of 2,507 m. Passing the Madeleine stream, you enter Vallon de Cléry. Take a break at Chalet Suiffet, where time stands still, before starting the descent. Did you know that, as you go down to the village, you'll be walking in the footsteps of the "elders"? In the past centuries, so much hay has been transported along this Ramasse trail that your descent on the "fast path" takes on all the charm of tradition.
