A nice shortcut to Le Prarion chairlift when going down back from Alpage Respect

Access Info

When going down Route des Aillouds turn right on the singletrack in front of the Black Rock Ski Lodge. On chemin de la Fouilly, after 40m, look on the left for the singletrack that goes down to Le Prarion parking lot (Watch out, it's difficult to spot)
