    From the car park at the end of the tarmac road, take the wide dirt track that leads to the Croix de la Troche.
    1 km after the cross, you'll come to the hamlet of Les Prés Plans, with its sumptuous 17th-century chapel of Notre Dame de la Vie.
    The valley widens after the hamlet to form a large green plateau dotted with old mountain chalets.
    The road ends at the 2 bridges, where you'll find a signpost, and you can retrace your steps to return.
