Trace des Poteaux
From there are links to other trails: L'Echelle, La Soufrière, L'Armistice, etc. Plan to have a vehicle at the planned point of arrival in Les Bains Jaunes or else follow the Trace des Poteaux on the way back, too (Please note, difficult descent).
NB: this route is a section of a variation on the "Trace des Alizés" GR trail (a shortcut to La Citerne refuge, avoiding the Trace des Etangs and going up the RD4 Carbet road).
Please note: unsupervised car park.
