This is a lovely circular walk in a little hidden valley with outstanding views
Carry on the road through Les Coches and at the junction at Fontaine Froide, keep following the signs for "Les Bauches en voiture" until the end of the road (Les Bauches car park).
Follow the road and then the track that goes up the right-hand bank of the "Ruisseau des Bauches" stream. After crossing at the ford, carry on up the switchbacks to Le Dérochoir (wet rocks).
Once there, take a path off to the right which levels out and crosses varied landscape before reaching the Chalet du Carroley. After climbing up a few meadows, you reach the lake.
After a good snack, walk back down to the chalet and then down to the car park on the narrow road.
