  • Guidebook with maps/step-by-step
    1/ From the car park (for which a charge is made in high season), follow the closed road along the right bank of the Guiers Vif. Initially tarmacked, the path then becomes more varied. 2/ Go straight on at the next signpost. 3/ Then turn left to reach the foot of the La Pisse du Guiers waterfall. Retrace your steps to continue along the other bank of the Guiers Vif. Throughout the walk, take care as the paths are wet, steep and sometimes on the edge of a cliff. The forests through which you pass are private, so keep to the marked paths. PLEASE NOTE: Bivouacs and fires are FORBIDDEN in the Cirque de St Même.
