From the carpark take the path ascending parallel to the forest track. Wide and well signed, it's pleasantly winding through the Chevron forest before leading onto the ridge at the place called Croix de Périllet (1710m high).

From this promontory, there is a beautiful view of the Combe de Savoie and the path of the aerial ridge (not recommended to people afraid of heights or in rainy weather) leading to the top of the Belle Etoile.
