From the Miribel-Lanchâtre town hall, go up the street towards "les Adrets". Cross the D8, continue on the Pré Tarachou road, then by a wide stony path on the left, join the road on the right in the direction of Les Gouveyrts. A magnificent panorama is then offered on the Trièves. Continue the descent on the road and, just after the farm of Fond Carle, turn left on a path towards the Pont Péron to join the torrent of the Gresse [slippery sector in case of heavy rain]. Do not take the footbridge but go straight up. Pass the barriers [do not forget to close them]. At the "Malamorta" post, turn right in the direction of Serre du Roux. The path goes up in the forest, crosses the ford of the Pierre du Mai stream, goes along the sports course equipment before arriving on the ridge at the "Plan de Miribel" post. Turn left on a wide path that leads back to Miribel-Lanchâtre [view on the Chartreuse and the north of the Vercors]. At the post "La Tournie", go straight ahead on a grassy path. Go up to the left along the D8. Turn right before the bus stop to reach the starting point.
