From the train station cross the railway, the river and take the road on the right. This trail is also a cross country skiing track. You will follow the road accross the forest to go to the small and authentic village of Vers l'Eglise. Do not miss a stop at the Museum which always has some great exhibition about the valley. And before you keep going, have a drink at the Auberge de l'Ours. You can visit the old temple in the center of the village as well.
To go back you can take the same trail or you can go to the train stop and take the train back to les Diablerets. A third possibility is to go to the main road cross it and follow the chemin les Jeans and then les Bovets you will now be on the left side of the valley. From that point the view is quite astonishing.
If you want to do the whole tour you should probably count around 1h30.
