Le Praz to Montcharvet

Walk along Allée des Cerisiers on the right of the chapel. The road leaves the village and turns into a dirt track (cross-country ski piste in winter).
Continue along the path through meadows and forests to the foot of Dent du Villard.
Cross over the first stream in a bend, the Montgellaz stream.
In a hairpin turn which is also a cross-country ski piste, the path goes back into the forest on a short uphill path. Cross Les Gravelles stream and walk along the little path next to it. At various crossings, continue straight on along the fairly flat path.
Cross another stream, La Rosière stream. The path continues until the hamlet of Montcharvet.
