Then, you will join again a wide trail (also accessible to mountain bikes) to the famous heart of Farino and the rest area of the Houé camp (landmark n°20). More picnic tables are available at the kaori area (marker #21). You will then have to turn right at the landmark n°44 to join the pretty river "Houé" at the level of the Bains de la Houé. Then you will come back to the reception by passing again in front of the Pompidou bridge and by resuming the trail taken at the outset.
