The trail leaves from the Etivaz caves, where Etivaz AOP is aged to perfection. After several meters on the road, the trail climbs toward the chapel before joining a road that goes back down the valley via pastures on the right bank. When the road enters the forest, look for a path that splits off into the woods and pastures. Follow the path until it meets back up with the road, a few hundred meters further. Etivaz AOP is produced in several of the chalets in this area. Follow the trail as it curves left and goes down to meet the main road in Devant de l’Etivaz.  After 200m on the main road, the route descends in the forest near the Torneresse river. Walk along the increasingly steep-sided, right bank, then follow the road for several hundred meters to where the path splits off, climbing to offer impressive views of the Pissot gorges below.  From this viewpoint, the path drops back down through the forest and across the main road. Descend to the village of the Moulins through valley floor prairies and pastures, scattered with traditional homes.
