• You find the car park at the former railway station, on “le Plan” road, just opposite the shopping facilities

• Go onto the former railroad  alongside the two way road until you reach Notre Dame junction

• From this point, go onto Les Arcs road up to La Croix pathway. (In dry weather, follow the pathway onto your right going uphill: this saves you from walking alongside the main road)

• Walk straight ahead up to the very top of La Croix pathway.

• Once you have reached the selective sorting centre, keep straight ahead onto Suous pathway and follow it as far as the very end of it.

• At this point, take a sharp right turn onto Le Puits pathway and follow it until you reach the Escombes slope.

• Turn left (ignore the trail on your right as it leads to Notre Dame junction)  and turn left again until you meet Escombes housing estate

• Keep straight ahead and follow la Cotte slope until the air well is met on your right.

• Once you have visited the air well, follow the road downhill and take a sharp turn left onto the path heading to the station and the carpark.
