Branch off to the right to Le Mont and then to the Lécherré and carry on to Col du Pillon on a technical, undulating trail with some elevated passages. From the pass, continue on to Lac Retaud and then on to La Marnèche (above Isenau). Then follow the path which passes the bottom station of the Palette ski lift and then leads like a kind of wall up to the summit of la Palette.

About 100 metres before the chalet branch off to Arpille, then to the left towards Metreille and then Marnex, then descending to La Comba, finishing up in the village.
