Join a small road, cross the railway line and continue until you find the D 103; follow it to the left for 400 m.
At the crossroads at the start of the right turn, turn left onto the middle path: it goes down between the meadows then turns right. After a climb, come out on a perpendicular path. Go down left, turn right and walk along the Loire. Join the first houses of Vorey-sur-Arzon.
