FROM LA JAIRAZ TO MONTCHARVET

From the old saw mill (with the water wheel), cross the bridge over the mountain stream. Follow the path opposite up as far as the “four paths” crossroad. Go past the level path over the mountain stream on the left and carry on opposite along the path leading up into the valley. You will arrive near a small
bridge (20 minutes after leaving La Jairaz). Cross the bridge and then walk up along a little, winding footpath beside a clearing on the left.
