From the church in Eygliers, take the road up to the hamlet of Font d'Eygliers. Go through the hamlet and after the fountain, take a dirt path that indicates "Gros". Then, take the path that goes down to the water pipe. Once you arrive on the flat ground near the pipe, go under it and continue on a little track, which continues up in steep bends. You will walk 2 km on the mountainside so be careful; some areas are steep (cables). Right in front of you, on the other side of the gorges: the Guillestre agricultural plateau and the Pain de Sucre (Sugar Loaf). The path goes near a beautiful and massive juniper and ends up on a larger track made of stones. Once on the track, before the first houses of the village of Gros, go straight up the bank to get to the village. Go through it and take the road on the left that goes down to Eygliers. It is also part of the GR 541. At a given point, leave the road and take the trail that goes up steep on your right. Once under the trees, the path continues in a gentler slope. At the junction, take the dirt track that goes down to the left. You will keep on this track until you get to the hamlet of Coin. The view is then clearer and you will be able to admire the Mont-Dauphin stronghold and its fortifications. At Coin, follow the road that goes downwards. Then, in a hairpin bend, leave it to take a country lane that will take you to the Rua d'Alay and finally to the church of Eygliers.
