The route starts in Aminona, where there is a large car park, a café with a terrace, and a tourist information point. The route alternates between forests and open pasture via La Cure, a restaurant with a sunny terrace where you can try local specialities. From this point onwards it is a fairly sustained climb via Aprili where you will find a small rural chapel. You then pass in front of the Cave du Sex, whose terrace will be ready to welcome you when you return for your next hike in the summer. In the meantime, continue in the direction of the Columbire Ecomuseum. The museum is dedicated to the transhumance and is situated within the stunning traditional «mayens» (springtime mountain pastures). The restaurant has a large terrace with a panoramic alpine view that will take your breath away. Head down to Aminona where there are free buses to take you back to the resort.
