A demanding but very satisfying itinerary that runs from the extraordinary Pont d’Aël Roman bridge-aqueduct along the side of the river Grand Eyvia valley as far as the area of Aymavilles and from there climbs a steep footpath to the top of Poignon. A very steep descent takes us back to the starting point.
