At the entrance of Montchavin, walk 100m up in the direction of Les Coches, and bear to the right, along the signposted "Pierra". Continue past "La Pierra" along the forest footpath, and after a short descent, stop at the signpost "entrée ouest de la Pierra", and take the left turn up the large track. At the second corner, continue to your right for a short descent, before arriving at chalet "Le Pantier". Now follow the road up in the forest, and out onto the fields of "Les Esserts".
On arrival at "Praz Salvard", follow the signpost left to Les Coches, through this uninhabited hamlet, and onwards to the "Orgère" parking area. From here Les Coches center is 10 minutes downhill walk. Return to Montchavin on foot or by free shuttle bus.

Leave the road, taking the righthand footpath signed "Montchavin par la Pierra". After 300m or so, take lefthand fork at the signpost, and walk down the large track for 10 minutes to "Pierra Ouest".
