The departure of this hike is in front of Veysonnaz Tourisme. The footpath begins after the parking spaces along the route de l'Ours, on the right as you go up the road. The walk takes you pleasantly through the forest. You then return through the 'mayens' via Les Combes to the picturesque hamlet of Verrey. The tour continues on to the Ogeintze torrent, crosses it and then descends to the Bisse de Vex, which brings you back to the Veysonnaz gondola departure station.

What is a mayen? It is the Valais inhabitants' summer residence. In the past, families accompanied their cattle there after the winter and generally went to the mayens in May, hence the origin of the word.
