Departing from Saint-Colomban-des-Villards (73130)
Average length : 03h30
Signed walking trail

Descriptive: From the Chef-lieu of St Alban, go to the Croix des Charrières. When you’re at the torrent, don’t cross over it and carry on the path on the left of the torrent (right bank). After about 15 min walking at the Moletta, at the junction go to the path on the right in order to cross the bridge. Then come back by the forest track to the Replat’s chalets. From here, there is a shady path which cut the path to the Premier Villard. Go to the Moulins’ path, to return to the Chef-lieu of St Alban. Traverse the road and go down to the torrent (old sawmill, mill), and go back up toward the Chef-lieu. This familial stroll allows to do a picnic on the sloping ledge. From the Premier Villard, above the Replat’s chalets, continue on the left path, cross the torrent and go down at the Moletta.
