Description

Start from Villeneuve on asphalt southbound and all asphalt for 5 km to Champlong. Continue by wide dirt road always in the forest on trail marker 1 with very few forks, one of the few to avoid leads to Chevrére. From the plateau of Petit Poignon (1560 m) the view opens to the entrance of the Cogne valley, then to Grivola and Gran Nomenon.

The first part of the descent on trail 2, perfectly marked, is OC+ in places, rough rock, then BC. The direction is east toward Pont d'Ael.

You arrive at Le Pont d'Ael Pont (880 m), particular for its bridge-aqueduct from Roman times; the upper part was used for water passage and the lower part for walking people and animals. It was a rare case of a private aqueduct for industrial purposes, namely the extraction and processing of bardiglio marble in the quarries located further downstream. (cit. site lovevda-culture-architecture-roman-bridge-aqueduct)

Heading north with partly rideable sections, proceed on little path to a final steep before a tunnel, lit.

Downhill section, then asphalt, then on the right trail 2 begins again in Eissogne to Aymavilles.

From here on asphalt back to Villeneuve.
