Start at St Véran below the ski resort on the Prat-Mian trail, cross the Bois des Amoureux (woods), then climb to the villages of Pierre-Grosse and Le Coin to reach the Rouchas-Frach Canal. Follow the canal to the ‘Memorial Site'. Take the road back down via the Notre Dame du Berceau oratory and Hannibal's Rock.
At the Ariane Bridge:
- Option 1: return directly to St Véran via the Bois des Amoureux, on the track that follows the river to the Route des Amoureux, which takes you back to St Véran.
- Option 2: go back up to the Longet pass, then take the old Copper Mine discovery trail and return to St Véran via the Grand Canal.
