From the Place de Verdun, head to the church, go across to reach the Grand’Rue then take the first right (Rue du Moulin). Take the village road No.2 of Méouilles. Continue on this road until the Verdon and cross it. Continue on the left bank of the road and 200m before the restored castle of Méouilles, across from the entrance to the Deux Saints tourist site, take the path going left towards the mountain.
1- Go along the trail with craggy black rocks then a clearing before heading into the woods. At 400m, reach a road in a curve. Keep going and 200m further, follow the trail down to the right. Go up the trail. When exiting the woods, pass through the clearing and, below a cottage, reach the track from the house of Villard. Continue on the track to the state-owned forest.
2- Climb the path that rises with switchbacks interspersed with a train. Follow the less steep and more enjoyable trail. After 1.5km of walk, reach a forest track. Take the path rising on the opposite side. Make the final climb through a rising trail with long crossings to the ridge. Reach the top of Serre Gros 100m to the right.
3- At the top, head down the same path.
