Around the beginning of the 14th century, this was the path taken by the poor on their way to mass at La Part-Dieu monastery. Their devotion was rewarded with a bowl of soup and a piece of bread. This path dates from 1307, like the monastery itself. Originally, it was used by the monks and the oxen, as they made their way down to the river in search of stones needed to build the monastery.
Today, anyone can walk along this 7-km route. The trail begins outside Bulle and heads towards the village of la Chia. If you are travelling by car, park at the edge of the forest, near to the old mill at la Trême. The starting point is clearly signposted. If you need some refreshments along the way, there is the Buvette de la Chia (open every weekend) or a scenic picnic spot on the banks of the river.
Note(s) Passable from May to end of October.
