At the departure panel, head towards Marenne . Notice on the right a wooden cross and, in the small square square, a beautiful stone tank with a cast iron pump. At n ° 49, notice the beautiful sculpted door. We pass in front of a small brick chapel. On leaving the village, after an old cob and half-timbered hayloft, turn right (GR) into Rue des Roches and, after the picnic table, take the 1st path on the right. Pretty country lane in the middle of pastures and then in the undergrowth. Cross a small stream and go up a wide stony path bordered by hardwoods, conifers, broom, various thorns (hawthorns). Notice another wooden cross on the left. At the crossroads, straight on: beautiful view of the village and the church of Marenne *. The path descends rapidly towards the village. Join the road, noticing a new flowered cross on the spruce (in the 19th century, crosses often marked the limits of a village). Go left. At the next "Y" (notice an ordeal under the trees), turn right into the dead-end lane, lined with ash trees. At the edge of the wood, "Y" on the left. Stony path. Beautiful panoramic view. The path enters in a beautiful beech wood and climbs. On the left, plantation of larches. Stay on the main path which continues to climb slightly in the beech grove. Then the path smooths out. You reach a crossroads after going along a spruce wood on the left. Go to the left and stay on the main path until you reach a multi-directional crossroads (alt. 400). Wood of tall Scots pines. Wide and stony path. Notice a plantation of Douglas-fir (they give off a slight scent of lemon when crumpled). "Y" on the left. Spruces on the right and Scots pines on the left. Join a “T” crossroads and go left towards Menil -Favay.
