For those who wish to discover Lake Guerlédan and continue to Lorient, it is necessary to take the old little train track called the V6 to Mûr-de-Bretagne for a few kilometres. For the others, the sandy road along the Hilvern Gully continues to Hémonstoir.
A marked departmental link of nearly 10 km connects Moncontour, "Petite Cité de Caractère" and "Plus Beau Village de France."
