This is another long section, passing along the old Roman road and then head onto woodland tracks which can be muddy. It follows Sigerics original route to reach Marac and then along the D102 to Beauchemin. Sigerics path continues on a very busy road so we leave it here and take a more direct route to the Reservoir de la Mouche before a climb to Langres
