From the car park, cross the viaduct and then go right on the main road for around a hundred metres, before going along the path in front of the K&G Brasserie. The itinerary goes via the hamlets of Vivier and Messy. When you reach Messy, cross the main road and a footpath will take you to the Route Communale d’Anglay, to this small hamlet nestled at the foot of the towering Bartou cliff. The small road then leads onto a forest road that in turn leads to Châble and Jourdy. Go right along the tarmac road and at a sharp bend, follow the path towards Messy, via Le Moulin. Cross through the village of Messy and then go back onto the path towards Vivier. "Sous Messy", go left towards Fromeson and when you reach an isolated farm, turn right and go down through the undergrowth until you get to Vivier. Then go as far as the Mieussy viaduct.
