Take the gondola and enter the path through the woods. You walk down through little hamlets (Les Combes). Nice and easy downhill trail. Enjoy the beautiful view over the peaks!
Starting point: at the top of the gondola, at 1970 m
Arrival: at the bottom of the gondola (carpark)
Duration: 2:10 hr downhill

At the top of the gondola, take the stairs to the left along the picnic room and then turn left to reach the trail's starting point (sign). The route goes downhill and describes a few bends. Further down, it enters the forest until you reach the wide Bois track (ski slope in winter).

Head up (on the right) on this trail for 50 meters to take on the left a rather wide trail that goes down into the forest.
The path heads on the left, going along the Réclard stream, which it then fords. The route goes up slightly, passes a "bump"; always follow the track which reaches below the "forest house" (water point).

From this point, follow the track straight through the forest by a short ascent that crosses and arrives at the crossing of a second track that can be driven on.
Take the downhill one; it winds its way down to reach the hamlet of "Combes d'en Haut", then "Combes d'en Bas". At "Combes du Milieu" leave the alpine road for a path on the right, heading down to Champagny le Bas. The path joins up with the alpine road to go down to the gondola car park (arrival).
