Starting from the Guillestre tourist office, go past the post office and take Joseph Mathieu street. At the end of the street, turn left and at the next junction follow the Chemin “des Chapelles”. At the Saint Roch chapel, turn right and follow the road that becomes a dirt track after the last houses. This track crosses the agricultural plateau of Gaboyer and goes down to the end of it, first through a meadow and then through a forest, before linking up to a footbridge over the Guil. To the right, after the footbridge, continue up the right bank of the Guil on a wide rocky path to the Simoust bridge. Cross over the bridge, then start a steep but short climb up a tarmacked road. After the second hairpin bend, turn left onto an easy footpath in order to reach the “Sugar Loaf” and skirt it to the north. At the road, head towards Guillestre and cross to the left after the bridge. Go straight on past the back of the housing estate up to the Combe Chauve forestry trail. Continue up for approximately 1 km before heading right to follow a downhill technical footpath. Now, simply follow the forestry trail and return to Guillestre by going right in front of the marble workshop to link up to the Queyras roundabout then the town centre.
