Starting at the Planards, head up the 'piste' sticking on the 4x4 track. Keep following the big obvious 4x4 track all the way for around 40 mins.
Look for a group of signposts on your right, then follow the single track up with the directions to 'Caillet'. About 10 mins you should reach the small buvette/cafe. The downhill begins past the cafe.
Follow it all the way down to the train tracks, it continues on the other side of the tracks.

 Between the 4x4 track and the buvette it is probably easier to push the bikes. The buvette does organic food and drinks and is worth a stop. The last section above the rail track on the way down is more like 'very difficult/ black diamond' level, with some chunky rock/bend combos.
