Then take the old Roman route of route n°5 (snowshoeing) to the top of the place called "La Perelle". (3) From this place take a track to the right, it is marked snowshoes n°6, it makes a few small ascents before reaching the Antonins forest track. At this point go down on the left, you are close to the arrival in this hamlet.
    When you are on the road turn right, then left at the next crossing.
    (a) The other departure is over Le Hameau de la Brévardière, at the end of the road not cleared in winter. After a short climb turn left on a track that goes up before going down on the "Ocepe forest track". Then turn right, climb on this track until the Col du Coq.
    From the pass of the mountain, the descent is the same as in route N°5. Pay attention when you come back to the junction taken in the morning above Brévardiere continue straight down to reach your starting point.
