ITINERARY
From the hamlet of Puy-le-haut (le Freney d'Oisans) park at the entrance to the hamlet. From the car parking, go back slightly along the road for 250 m, to join the path which goes to the right and will lead you to the Croix de Trévoux.
After this, continue on the right-hand path towards Les Cours. The path crosses a more shaded area before passing on the other side of the Combe which is more open.

Return by the same way, or you can make a loop by following the path 315 (OBP map) by a path which leaves above Les Cours and joins the road before going back to the right in the direction of old mines (path 314). Then follow the direction of Puy-le-Haut.

TO SEE ON THE TRACK
- the Croix de Trévoux (Trévoux means "three ways"), a site at the crossroads of three roads at the intersection of the communes of Le Freney and Auris.

THINGS TO SEE AND DO NEARBY
- the heritage orientation trail, to discover the hamlets of Auris (available at the tourist office or downloadable from the website www.auris.fr).

TO KNOW
The Les Cours/Puy-le-Haut walk is known as the Chemin du Facteur (postman's path), as for a long time the postman used to pass along this path to deliver the mail.

Dogs must be kept on a lead because of the presence of herding dogs at certain times of the year.
