The Devil's Bridge is awaiting reconstruction. The ONF has installed temporary footbridges. They are short and narrow. Foot traffic is compulsory.

- The routes you take are your own responsibility. You must choose a route adapted to your physical and technical capacity. If in doubt, do not hesitate to contact mountain professionals.

- Find out about the weather conditions before your departure.

- Be properly equipped to practice hiking in complete safety and deal with the vagaries of the weather.

Tell someone if you are leaving alone and prefer a morning departure so as not to be surprised by the night.

Start - From the tourist office, head up Rue des Grandes Alpes towards the hamlet of Les Verneys. 1 - Once you've crossed the bridge, walk along the parking lot to take the footbridge on the left of the main road to the "Vita Vittel" fitness trail. You can also take advantage of the Valloirette Bike Park. 2 - Once you're in front of the equestrian center, go straight on to the Verneys chairlift. You can cross the bridge to see the straw and hay sculptures (along the D902), or continue straight ahead on the path alongside the river. 3 - Continue straight ahead on the path and then the D902 road along the river towards the Col du Galibier and Plan Lachat. 4 - Go straight down the path to the right after the road junction at Bonnenuit. 5 - Return by the same route.
