At Fontpeyrisse (picnic area), continue along the road until you are overlooking the village. From here there is a breathtaking view of Cubserviès and the surrounding area. Continue to reach the junction with the trail (6) to Labastide, and here to leave the metalled road (if you stay on the road, the chapel is 300m further on). After two hairpin turns, the trail descends into the woods, crossing a stream, source and ruins. At the intersection, after these ruins (7) be careful to stay on the correct path. Stay right, and continue down to Labastide. Ascend from the bottom of the village, pass the square and find the road.
