La Manche circuit


Discover the foothills of Pilat on the banks of the Rhône with this family loop: alternating undergrowth and old orchards, as well as beautiful views of the Monts du Lyonnais.


-> From the car park, follow the trail on the ridge until the first junction.
-> Continue straight ahead to the edge of the wood. The trail then turns right and passes a series of pylons. In the wood, stay on the main path at the different junctions and then go down along a field (view of the Alps, Vienne and Lyon). Join a road at Croix du Pont.
-> Go straight ahead on the road (Chemin de la Manche). After 600 m, the road turns left and reaches a farm. After the buildings, go down to the left on the steep track for about 300 m.
-> Don’t miss the path on the left at the first junction. Continue on the balcony above the Siffet stream. The trail goes into the undergrowth and descends to the road at the stream. Take the road to the left for a few metres.
-> Turn left into the small valley on a path that crosses a stream and climbs the hillside. It then turns left. Continue the climb less steeply on a trail. Cross a road and take the path in front of you until you reach a junction with a track; take it to the right and join the outbound path.
->Return to the Grisard car park.
