Itinerary: Get off the road as if to leave the station. Just before the entrance sign "Oz-en-Oisans", turn left on the path direction "Le Faubourg / Le Bessay". A former alpine path lined with stone walls, it descends into the forest and joins a wider track. Turn left and continue the descent. Continue towards the hamlet of Bessay. You cross then the torrent which is located in "La Combe du Pissarot". At the wash house of Bessay, take the path on the right and climb to the road. The climb continues in front, direction "Longer Pieces / The Plan of the Deer". The climb is quite steep and long. At the first wooden directional sign, continue uphill (do not turn right> cul-de-sac). At the crossroads of the summit, take the direction "Oz Station". A few steps further, continue your path to the right at the cabanon. You cross the torrent again. The walk ends in the heart of the Forest of Oz Leisure Park. Join the starting point by passing the tennis court and crossing the pedestrian zone.
