From Perdtemps square (A), place yourself at the landry and leave towards the left crossing the ‘’col de la Faucille’’ road (B).  On the small square, take a small road on the right going down to ‘’Le Moulin’’ (C). There take a left path, then a fork (D), be guided by the signposting to ‘’Haut des Galas’’(E).  Coming to a forest road, go up to a platform(F).  Continue opposite to be guided to a wide path then a tarmac road.  Do not miss, along the road (G), a downward path then going up to the gradins.  When at ‘’Seblines’’(H), take the road then go down through the path to Sarrazines gates(I).  Come back to a footbridge(J), go through then back to the ‘’Moulin’’ before entering at Perdtemps on the same path.
