In a gentle descent, the route follows the «La Torneresse» wild stream for several kilometres until the valley narrows at the Gorges du Pissot. This is where the scenery reveals views of the wide valley of the Pays-d’Enhaut. After Châteaux-d’Oex, the trail descends to Rossinière. From Rossinière via a bridge dating back to 1650 to the Col de Solomon. After the descent to the Hongrin Valley, the ascent to the Col de Chaude with superb views of Lake Geneva awaits. From there, the route continues uphill to the intermediate station of the Rochers de Naye cogwheel railway. From Rochers de Naye with its marmots, rock-restaurant and panorama of hundreds of crags and summits, the route leads along a steep ridge and sandstone cliff trail, later down over Mediterranean hills to Montreux.
