Rather comfortable and easy trip because the path is very rolling. Several crossings of hamlets on public highways. Very pleasant panorama on the Mont Blanc between Messy and Vivier.

Guidebook with maps/step-by-step : Borrow the road for about 40 meters and take the forest path on your left which goes back and which is "parallel" to the road. You will reach a big farm which you have to by-pass to go into the wood. Then you will reach a public highway in the hamlet "La Touvière ", in the intersection, stay on the left. After some houses you will be again on a rocky path which connects the hamlet of Ranchy. In the intersection stay on your right, then in the right turn, after the crash barrier turn left on the grass slope which goes along a house.
You will reach the hamlet of Messy, turn right after the house to cross the small bridge, then turn left to cross the hamlet. It will be necessary to push a little to reach the secondary road which is between several very tight houses. Caution in this crossroads with limited visibility. Turn left on the secondary road for approximately 300 meters. It will be necessary to push because it is flat. In the left turn, continue straight ahead on the tarred road. It will be transformed into a forest track. Approximately 200 meters farther, take the path which goes to the left and makes a light bump. The path is almost flat. You will cross a new bridge, then turn left to reach pastures and enjoy the view.
This part is flat and so you have to push a little for 400 meters. The path will come down again to reach the hamlet of Vivier. As soon as you join the road, turn left, go straight ahead, pass between blue cans and turn right between the two buildings of the holiday cottage. The way is narrower and goes along the low wall. Here you are almost arrived at the city center, in the bend towards the old cheese dairy and the sawmill.
