Description of the path: the walk starts at the Arêtes indoor swimming-pool (F) ( 25m pool, sauna, fencing hall and Teppan Yaki restaurant ). Walk along the crest of the hill (1) through the fields (if you look back you can just see the town down in the valley) and go down onto the lane which passes the Reprises (2), along the border with canton Berne. Walk around the Mont-Cornu, which is recognisable by its radio-tv antenna, up a steep incline to the Chalet Heimelig (3), a former dairy. Good views of the Chasseral and the valley where Saint-Imier lies. Turn left to go down towards the bus-stop in the residential area named Le Cerisier (G). It is possible to walk further by following Le Chemin de l'Abeille marron to Les Foulets.
