This route gives you an opportunity to discover "le Bief", a canal that used to carry water
to supply the little "montagnettes" huts used only in the summer for watching over livestock. This is a pleasant, relaxing walk with wonderful views over the valley and Mont Blanc.

The path goes off slightly uphill to the left, crossing over the ski runs 4 times before arriving in Le Chanton. From here, you can either return to Les Coches on a narrow road or else carry on towards Fontaine Froide and then along a forest track to the hamlet of Les Bauches.
