The route begins on the road passing by several buildings in the hamlet, before climbing through pastures and passing the occasional wood structure, on the way to the Cases. From here, the climb to the Col de Jaman (Jaman Pass) really begins, crossing several alpine pastures along the way. On the first part of the climb, the border between the Cantons of Vaud and Fribourg is clearly visible. Old walls and fences define the line between the Dent de Hautadon to the south and the Chaîne des Verraux to the north. Pastures dotted with rock piles, alpine chalets with "tavillon" (wood shingle) roofs,  and tumbling streams and small lakes (relics of glaciation) are common sites along this section of the route to Jaman Pass. From this strategic and scenic point on the cheese- makers trail, the view majestically opens up to reveal Lake Geneva, le Lavaux and the Baye de Montreux Valley. Next, the trail rapidly descends into the forest following the historic cheese-makers route. Just after crossing the Baye de Montreux, the trail climbs once again to the road. Notice the well-preserved historic retention walls and follow the road to the village of the Avants.
