Follow the tarmac road for 200m until you reach the first perpendicular fork in the road; the path then crosses two fields to arrive at the edge of the forest that hangs over the Planay torrent. Descent slightly by 50m, cross the bridge and you have arrived at Moulin Contant.
Remains of millstones in the grazing lands on your left, not far from the former farm. Continue along the path that goes beside the torrent in the direction of Planay following the signposts. The path rises into a meadow to reach the road that takes you to the picturesque village of Planay.
Continue on your right and cross the bridge. Follow the path to the right in the direction of Bacré farm. Continue by the hedge-lined path that will take you back to the starting point.
