Description of the route
From the village of Oyace, the path climbs up through meadows, cutting across the dirt road.
Reaching the summer pastures of Eclevey, it enters a conifer wood where it begins to rise rapidly, arriving at the summer pastures of Suchéaz.
Continuing on up through woodland it arrives at the summer pastures of Brison.
After a long, mid-slope diagonal stretch, the path rises up a tight series of curves of the last steep slope leading to Col Brison.
From here, there is a fairly long initial descent through meadows and rocky outcrops, until you reach a very scenic, flat area.
From here, a long mid-slope diagonal begins, leading to the summer pastures of Berrio Superiore.
At this point, take the unmetalled road which descends gradually, first through meadows and then woodland, until it reaches Ollomont.
After a few more minutes along the asphalt road, you reach the village of Rey.
