Go and reach the little hamlet of Petches (950m of altitude) through an old little path in the forest that is picturesque and without any cars.Departure from the tourist office : In front and on the right take the Couzillou bridge to join the market place and the cable car station. Here, take left toward the Virgin Mary Rock. In front avec the sign "Chemin Saint Roch", go up on the street on the right. After the last building, continue straight forward on the trail. The trail continue on a little road in tarmac that lead to a bigger road called the "RN2020" that you will cross a few meters futher down on the left.
Le retour par la route offre de beaux panoramas. La montée grimpe dur mais les rochers moussus et la terre souple adoucissent son ascension.
