0 km - After having parked your vehicle, climb up the mound above the car park and at junction 1 you can choose the direction of the loop. It's better to set off to the right. The climb is less harsh than to the left.
0.2 km - The path descends gently overlooking la Rivière des Galets and in front you can see the first ramparts of Mafate.
0.6 km - You will reach the guardrail protecting you from a vertiginous drop directly above Deux Bras. The viewpoint over la Rivière des Galets is magnificent. A few metres further on, take the time to admire one of the most beautiful views of Mafate. The ridges of Marianne and Aurère are in front of you.
0.9 km - A bit of up and down after the kiosk before reaching the first ladder. The ladders are securely embedded in the rock so you don't need to worry about climbing them.
1.7 km - You will reach fork 2. The path on the right follows the Mafate rampart to the Roche Ecrite refuge. A panel indicates that the path straight ahead goes down to Grand Coin, in the village of Dos d’Ane. Take the path on the left which climbs up and after a few metres you will reach Roche Verre Bouteille.
1.8 km - Climb up a hairpin bend and you reach an extraordinary viewpoint over the mini cirque of Dos d’Ane. The path now continues on the ridge and climbing all the time you can see the village of Dos d’Ane on the right and the cirque of Mafate on the left.
2.1 km - After leaving the orientation table the path is almost flat. Further on, there's a bench where you can sit and enjoy the view of the west coast and the city of Le Port.
