Reaching Villemartin., you'll find the chapel Saint Jean. Which is beautifully painted and decorated the inside. Continue following signposts toward Ratelard. Which takes about 20 minutes. Crossing a road to find the the trail on the other side, you continue 250 m up to Lachenal. here you will find the small chapel built in the 18th century, and you can take advantage of the nice bench to enjoy the view and take a short rest.
Again, following signposts, you'll reach the high point of the walk. You then begin a steep descent along the trail sign posted Tincave. Near the beginning of the descent, in the early season, you'll find several varieties of beautiful orchids. Continue down the trail until you reach the stream, called Bonrieu. Take the trail to Bozel along the stream that cascades through a series of dams that create beautiful waterfalls. After about 40 minutes, from the time you reached the stream, you'll reach Bozel. The descent is steep, but the trail is well-designed. Hiking poles are recommended.
We really enjoyed this trail, which is bordered by lush displays of wildflowers in the early season. We regret not taking pictures of the beautiful, fast-moving stream, but we were unable to take out our camera since it was raining steadily during our descent.
