    Not far from the walk is the Follow Farm, which sells local produce. You can also see the majestic bridges across the Caille (the oldest, which is Sardinian in origin, is a suspension bridge). Seen from the bridges, the Usses Gorge is spectacular. Have a break in the little mediaeval town of Cruseilles and take a look at the Mont-Salève cheesemaking plant and dairy.
