Map and points of interest

Let's go


Take the path towards the biathlon stadium and, before you reach the stadium, take the path on the left, towards La Goulaz. At La Goulaz bridge, continue on the path along the left bank of the Avérole stream, then turn right onto a path leading up into the forest. At the last hairpin bend, leave the track to turn right onto a balcony path across the Tierce mountainside which leads, further along, to the Ribon road. Cross the road (D902) and take the path back to the village.
