    This loop takes you from the Couvent car park to the top of Pointe des Arlicots and Grand Parra, the two lesser-known peaks of the Bauges. And for good reason: they are very difficult to access, and no marked path allows you to go there. I therefore advise you not to venture on this circuit in bad weather.From the car park, you gradually climb up a wooded path along the Lanche stream. You pass the Notre Dame de Bellevaux chapel and the ruins of a former Benedictine monastery, and continue your ascent towards the Combe de la Lanche. You then fork in the direction of Chalet Bottier. After the chalet, the path turns right. You must then leave it and climb the grassy slopes to the ridge. Once on the ridge, a semblance of a path is formed. Just follow it to get to the top of Pointe des Arlicots.
    From there you continue on the ridge to Grand Parra, whose summit is marked by a kind of metallic diamond. This crossing is simply magnificent! It is truly a wild and splendid corner of the Bauges. Whether at the Pointe des Arlicots or at the Grand Parra, you enjoy an incredible panorama of the surrounding peaks.
    From there, you descend towards the path that left a little earlier on the circuit. The slope is quite steep, and I advise you to take your time. Once back on the path, you begin a more gradual section of descent, before finding yourself again in the forest, then at the Couvent car park.
