The departure is from the parking lot of the church of Sainte-Colombe. Leaving the parking lot, turn left to go around the church. At the first intersection, take the road to the right towards the place called Quatre-Rieux. Follow the road then turn left onto the dead end.
Leave the tarmac road to take the path on the left which runs alongside the vines with an embankment on the right. Then take the path between the vines on the right. At the ditch, turn left and at the end of the vines, before the stream, turn right to walk alongside them with the stream on the left.
Take the paved road after the house. At the end of this road, turn left, then right at the sign "Château Puylasat". On the bend, leave the tarmac road to take the raised grassy path opposite.
At the end of this path, follow the tarmac road on the right. At the crossroads, turn right into Rue de l'Eglise. Pass in front of the church along the wall on the left and, at the war memorial, take the road to the left and follow it.
At the cross located at Château Beynat, take the path on the left (Chemin du Baradis). Follow this path which becomes gravelly and climbs between the vines. At the exit of the wood, take the path on the left.
At the height of the wood, turn right onto the grassy path which runs alongside the vines and which leads towards the houses. When you reach the top of the path, turn around to appreciate the view and at the hangar, turn left.
At the end of the road, turn left, then in front of the Sainte-Colombe entrance sign, take the path to the right which leads to the vineyards. At the end of the path, turn left on the small paved road.
In the bend before the small pond on the left, leave the road to take the grassy path opposite between the vines. At the top, take the small path on the left which goes up into the wood. Arrive at the top of this path, turn left then immediately right on the path that goes up. Pass the houses and walk along the stone wall. At the tarmac road, turn left and cross the place called Petit Mayne.
At the stop sign, take the road to the right. At the end of the road, go right again towards Branque. Almost at the bottom of the slope, at the 50 km/h speed limit sign on the left, take the grassy path on the left and walk along the vines. Then follow the dirt road that climbs towards the houses at a place called Rey.
Past the houses, follow the asphalt road. At the intersection, go left then left again at the departmental road (D17e2). Skip the speed bump.
At the town hall, just before the second speed bump, take the path on the right which leads to the vines. Walk along the vines and enter the woods. Follow the path that runs along the vines at the exit of the wood and return to the starting point.
