Take the track on the right that passes between the chalets. Go along a vast meadow to join a path through the woods which starts off flat. At the first intersection, turn left onto a path leading to the highest point of the forest. Continue across the mountain pastures until you reach the Montbas chalets (food service, sale of mountain produce). Go back down via a forest track. At an intersection, turn right towards Le Planay. Follow the pastures of Plan des Colombières, passing below a rock, the Roche des Colombières, until you join the path taken on the outward trip.
