    Go on the path that enters the forest and crosses two arms of the Clark ravine before going back up to cross two valleys successively. You will walk at the foot of the coastal woods, these tall trees with knotty trunks that are used by traditional sailors to make the mast of their boats. At the fork at the end of the track, turn to the left and go on the Plateau Michel track. The path goes down a gentle slope. A little less than an hour later, you will arrive at the thermal spa of Absalon.
