POND OF NAGUILLE

1 - Departure

At the end of the car park, follow the sign "Étang de Naguille 3h". The trail will be marked in Red and Yellow. Follow the forced pipe and turn left (the goal is not to go under the pipe). The well-marked path goes deep into the woods and arrives at a small bridge after a little over a kilometer.

2 - WOODEN BRIDGE

Cross the bridge and follow the path until the forest clears up. Continue another kilometer and a half to reach an old mine and reach a new bridge, this time made of iron.

3 - IRON BRIDGE

Cross this bridge and go up to the dam. Follow the markings carefully because the path starts in a zig-zag way. Once at the dam, the Etang de Naguille is in sight.

4 - POND OF NAGUILLE

The return is done by the same route as going to the car park.
