The itinerary starts in front of the Guillestre tourism office (on the road going behind the pizza hut). Once you have reached the Grand Selve trail, follow the yellow markings to the right that lead to the starting point. When you reach the Queyras road, you need to cross over and take the trail going left up to the Lauze. On the trail, turn directly to the right. Alongside the trail, you will find a canal with tall poplars overhanging to the left and hayfields spreading to the edge of the wood to the right. Higher, you can see the Guillestre pink marble quarry. Once you have reached the Lauze, follow the road up to the ‘Chazal’ housing lot and take the road going up to the right. On the trail of Combe Chauve, turn right at the junction. The trail goes past a ONF panel (the French National Forests Office). After about 200 m, the trail meets with a path edging a canal that heads right just below. Take this trail for about 500 m, and then turn left onto a small path going up into a forest of sparse pines. This trail goes through a small dell alongside the mountain. Continuing in the undergrowth, it heads down for a few bends (interesting flora: the savin juniper, a creeping species of junipers) bringing you out above the Rif-Bel farm. The circuit reaches the road and goes right towards Guillestre. Further ahead, it goes alongside the pink marble quarry workshop and goes returns to the starting point on the Queyras road.
