Park at the entrance of Bauduen, in a large car park.
(S/F) From the car park, go up Rue Grande, then right along Montée Saint Sauveur. Take the second road on the left, Chemin du Défends, and then the first right and follow it for about 3 km (just after marker 643).
This road starts out covered in asphalt and becomes stony (fine gravel). There is a gradual rise and the elevation is 160 m. This will be nearly the highest point of the course.
On a part of this first segment there is a beautiful view of the bottom of Bauduen cove.
(1) At the intersection turn left on the path that and follow it easily staying on the main road to marker 652 where there is a beautiful view of Lake Sainte-Croix.
(2) The return follows a small trail that is intermittently marked with an arrow or Blue paint. Along this stretch there is a view of the north-west part of Lake Sainte-Croix, the village of Sainte-Croix-du-Verdon and the dam on the Verdon.
(3) At a junction, the path joins Sentier du Veris, cross it. A stone pile with a cairn on the left mark this crossing. Our trail ends on Chemin Sainte-Anne le Chelnei.
(4) Take the left, passing by two streets on the left and reach Rue du Cours that extends onto Grand Rue and returns to the car park (S/F).
