Saut des Sorcières.

You leave in Rue De La Semois in the direction of the chapel of Notre-Dame de Lourdes. Just past the chapel, turn left and head in the direction of La Justice. First you walk along the edge of the forest and then descend through a mixed forest to the banks of the Semois. The path along the Semois is very beautiful. After a short climb in the direction of Mont de Zatou you take an unpaved road. A path crosses the ridge next to the dirt road. You arrive at the viewpoint Saut Des Sorcières. The view of the cirque is certainly worth it. Legend has it that the shepherd Colas Tcha Tcha taught witches how to jump from the top of the rock while sitting on their broom. From the ridge you continue through mixed forest through the valley of the Ruisseau des Aleines. Sometimes you get to see the river, but sometimes you don't. You will pass the Roche Colas Tcha Tcha where you also have a nice view. Eventually you end up in the hamlet of La Cornette. Here you start a tough climb and then enter mixed forest again. In the forest you walk on little trodden paths. You could take a wide path from WP1 on the map, but this is sometimes overgrown. You can then follow the route on the map. You arrive at the N816 and cross it. There is also a picnic bench. You now go along the other side of the valley of the Ruisseau Des Aleins to La Cul de la Huche. You will pass La Neuve Voie to return to Les Hayons.
