The start of this trail is located in front of the 'Magrappé' hotel. The trail strarts out towards the 'route de Pra', west of the resort of Veysonnaz. At the end of this road, you must follow the footpath which descends slightly overlooking the hamlet of Clèbes. Admire the exceptional view over the villages of Haute-Nendaz and Basse-Nendaz. Below the village of Clèbes, you follow the path carved out of the moraine. An extremely interesting place with its unusual dry prairy ecosystem, whether it be in terms of fauna and flora or its geological structure. You then join the 'bisse de Salins', with its suspended bridge over the 'Ogeintse', to reach the uphill part of the itinerary which returns to Clèbes through the forest, past the chapel and along the 'chemin de Croix' between the hamlets of Clèbes and Verrey. Verrey offers an interesting architectural ensemble representative of the traditional Valais village with its wooden and stone houses, barns, cow sheds, and grain stores. Then the trail climbs a little more to reach its highest point - don't miss the panoramic view from the wooden bench before going back down towards the 'Magrappé' hotel. You cross the « Lombardie » area, strewn with sunny meadows facing the Rhone Valley.
