Pass in front of a pink house and reach the beacon 43; it is necessary to continue to follow the path which goes up on the left. You then arrive on part of the GR52A.

    In the direction of marker 43, go through ten switchbacks which zig-zag in floors as you progress. You are higher than the Saint Martin collegiate church. At the level of the tag 43, continue the path straight towards the village in an undergrowth which opens after a few meters on the famous Saint Valentin plateau, also called "first plateau".

    You come out on old planks that were once cultivated ... walk towards the panorama which is clearer at the level of the pylon. Enjoy the view!

    Return by the same path or by the second plateau:
    The second plateau is the one we see overtaking on the right; at the cost of half an hour's walk and an additional 150 meters of vertical drop, reaching the 243 beacon and possible descent through the Riodore valley to the 250 beacon. Be careful, this path is frequented by herds, it is very very steep!
