    After crossing the Pont du Pré, behind the Maison du Dévoluy, the route continues to the "Serre Gautier" opposite Saint Etienne en Dévoluy via a tarmac track. The route overlooks the Parade des Etroits up to the panel of the same name. At the sign "Les Etroits", it branches off to the left in the direction of Bois de Boucherac. From there, it follows a small valley populated with pines, with particularly rich flora, and reaches the Crête des Baumes, a 360 ° belvedere over the Dévoluy massif. From the top of this, we descend to Collet du Tât by a steep path. From Collet du Tât, cross the forest track and dive down towards the picnic tables, then go to the "Bois la Baume" sign. Continue this pleasant descent through the undergrowth forest until the next sign "Le Goutail". Take direction "Les Etroits" and "Saint Etienne en Dévoluy". We walk along the parade des Etroits in a belvedere to reach the “Serre Gautier” and the route of the outward journey.
