Very nice itinerary, mainly downhill, with nice aerial views over Champagny le bas and Champagny le Haut. Warning: dogs are not allowed
Departure : "Gare supérieure la télécabine
Arrival : Champagny le bas
Duration : 3h05 including 45min of ascent
0/ From the upper station of the gondola (alt. 1970m), take the road that goes up on the right, passing near the arrival of the ski lift, then the departure of the Rossa chairlift.

1/ It continues across the valley; at the level of the restaurant "Roc des Blanchets" (closed in summer), take the track on the right which leads to the paraglider launch (do not take the path which goes down to the right). Still crossing this track, pass under the rocky ridge of Les Arriérés, to enter the combe of the same name (Alt. 2100m).

2/ Take the wide path that goes downhill on the right. It crosses the grassy slopes under the Vélière (magnificent aerial view) then reaches the edge of the forest, the "Plan du Bouc" meadow (Alt. 1960m) - view of the Champagny le Haut valley.

3/ At the junction, turn right (west) downhill, still in the meadows. The path continues to the right to enter the forest. About 200m after the "maison au toit pointu" (house with a pointed roof), you come to a fork; turn left, the path goes downwards following the coomb under the Bois des Chapelets.

4/ You reach a second fork in the road at a chalet called "La Fougère", and after a few twists and turns, you go down until you reach the tarmac road. Go downhill. At the first bend in the road, take the path on the right and go down to "Côte Arbet". Reach the path that goes down along the Remou stream. You return to the centre of the village.
