Starts from the centre of the village of Granier. It's a lively start, climbing on footpaths across the slope towards the hamlets of Thiabord then Pra Spa. The itinerary continues through the pastures under La Roche à Thomas before reaching the crests and summit of La Pointe Combe Bénite. You continue along the ridge before descending into the valley under the summit of Crêt du Rey into pastureland that you cross to the Cormet d’Arêches. The trail then climbs again towards the Croix du Berger and Plan de la Marmotte before going back down towards Plan Pichu and climbing once again towards the Chalets du Cormet and Lac de la Gouille.
