From the small car park downstream from the road, descend by the forest track for around 500 m. Arrived at the crossroads "Sous Covetan", turn right and walk in a forest atmosphere for 2 km. At the end of the track, go up on a path on some laces. Take a right to return to the starting point passing near a chalet. From there, there is a beautiful view of Mont-Charvin and the Aravis range. Continue on this false flat until the Covetan car park (possibility of reaching the Saisies station from Covetan: 3 km, 1 hour return).

TO KNOW :
The Covetan trail, snowshoe route in winter, is a thematic trail on wetlands in summer. This space, between Covetan and the Lachat plateau, is a group of peat bogs, part of which has been classified since 2013 as a Regional Nature Reserve. This environment is sometimes called "Little Lapland" because of the numerous plant species it contains present in Scandinavia.
