    At the Fouronnière car park, cross the stone bridge, then a second wooden one at the end of a short climb, to get to the ruins of Navette village. Cross Navette and continue on the path through the forest of Larch then Spruce, to rapidly reach the Buissard prairie. At its end, Buchardet waterfall reveals itself on the left.
