  • Guidebook with maps/step-by-step : From Jourdy car park, the path leads up to Jourdy cave, then a narrow path along the top of the cliff, with a handrail, to Roche Pallud. The itinerary crossed over Sommand plateau and then veers to the left at the residences, towards Mieussy. The path goes past the top of a waterfall along a walkway, crosses a cliff along a narrow spur with a handrail, and then leads back down along a scree path to Clos d’en Bas. You will then walk along some very pleasant country paths, until you reach Jourdy car park.
