From the tourist office (A), take the road bellow.  The latter goes past lapidary workshop (B).  When at the ‘’Chapelle’’ bar (C), take right down a small road then turn right (D) on a path through fields.  Follow the ground print then on a succession of duckboard along the Valserine.  Ending at the Moulin Pierre-Louis bridge (E), cross it then immediately turn left in the direction of ‘’Calamettes’’ then to Moulin Neuf (F).  Take the road on the right and along the Valserine to Fuitiere (G).  Go back up to the village.
