Stage :
This last stage is different and reveals its charm through its essentially forest descent. A splendid forest with multiple species. The viewpoints on the Matheysin plateau equal the previous more mountainous ones. The hamlets of Mont Sec and Montjean are authentic and make us discover the tranquility of the people who live there. Sustained descent to Vizille where you arrive behind the castle and its estate. Vizille, cradle of the Revolution: the historical break is essential and you will know everything about the birth of the Revolution.
