The majority of the stage is undulating and uses good tracks through vineyards, minor roads and Clairvaux forest. To avoid a steep climb the route continues through the valley to take a more direct route to Clairvaux.





Walk Description :


1 - With the Mairie behind you turn right along Rue d’Aube.  Cross over the road and the bridge and take the 2nd left Rue Gaston Bacheland.  After about 2km arrive at Fontaine.  Take the first right Impasse Buffry, continue on the track between vineyards and then turn left downhill. 


2 - Follow the track to reach the tarmac road and bear slightly right on the road Rue de la Prairie.  At the end turn right Rue St Antoine and just before the top of the hill turn left just after the crucifix.  The track passes between a line of trees to reach a road.  Turn left and continue up the hill to the village of Baroville. 


stage 583 - Pass the Mairie on the left, continue ahead along Rue des Pressoirs, and then straight across the crossroads Rue de la Cote Sandrey.  Where the road bears left after the large building on the right, continue straight ahead, up the track between vines, across the junction and straight on.  Take the left gravel track from the concrete one, GR marked.  Ignore the track on the right but cross over the next track, and then bear left onto the smaller one. 


4 - Continue on the forest track for approximately 2km, Sommiere des Moires.  At the T-junction ignore the GR marked right turn but continue ahead and then cross over the track and up the hill.  Continue ahead onto the forest track, Ignore the first right, but then bear right at the fork in the track, pass the Sommiere de Culbute sign on your left to then reach a road.  At the road turn left and then at the T-junction in Clairvaux turn left and continue to the junction with the main road, the Abbey Hotel is on the right.
