Technical Information

Route

Leaving the little village of Pontboset, with its eighteenth-century bridges and crossing the Ayasse river, the route begins the descent back to the valley floor. Little by little the spectacle of Mont Mars and Monbarone comes into view to the north. Little by little the valley opens out onto the villages of Hône and Bard, dominated by its imposing Fort.

Reaching the Dora plain, the path crosses the village of Bard and enters Donnas following the most picturesque stretch of the Roman Via delle Gallie. After the village the path ascends slightly to pass between vineyards until it reaches the hamlet of Bousc Daré; from here, it finishes back at Pont-Saint-Martin.
