(2) Follow the path due south for a few dozen metres and then take the path which heads off to the left, leading to a balcony overlooking the gorges, before heading back down to the hamlet of Valbonette.

(3) Continue to go along the Ravin de Mayaiche on the right bank before branching off to the right until you meet another small bridge going over the Estoublaisse.

(4) After crossing the bridge over the water, follow the path which climbs to the left until you reach another fork.
