From Saint-Crépin aerodrome, cross the bridge and continue straight on up to the railway track. Take the road to the right and go under the main road using the underpass further on. When you reach the crossing at the entrance to Saint-Crépin, turn right then at the first crossing, turn left, then immediately right on the road that crosses the estate. The road becomes a dirt track, goes past the Croix des Hodouls (cross), crosses the Merdanel stream and goes up to the hamlet of Hodouls on a tarmacked road. At this hamlet, take the road to the right that goes past the shops and links up to a pleasant single track along the edge of the field. Continue to the Frairie and from there follow the road to Eygliers. Turn left in front of the church, then 300 m further turn left again to cross the Rua Alay. With some effort, you will reach the road of the hamlet du Coin. From the village, follow a forestry trail that continues to the left. At the first crossing, follow the route to the right and after a large bend to the left, continue for a few hundred metres, then in a right bend, go up the fairly steep trail to your back right. When you reach the forestry hut, follow the trail that goes up above the hut and continue following the old dry stone walled path and the level of the slope, to reach the Bois Durat trail. Turn right. Link up to the road that leads to the village of Gros, before joining a magnificent winding descent to the right. You will then go through the following hamlets: la Goavie, then Font d'Eygliers before heading down to the Guil river. Take the trail to the left alongside the Guil. Below the fortified site of Mont-Dauphin, follow the dyke to the left, go under the main road bridge, cross the railroad at the level crossing and go through the Eygliers leisure park. The itinerary then follows the banks of the Durance back to the start point in Saint-Crépin.
