    Going down from Mont Dauphin to the noisy road nearby Guillestre is easy but from there the trail is very poorly marked to reached hamlet Mikeou
    Had to backed up and really searched hard for the way up to Mikeou, followed roads and trails without any markers...hard time even with a
    navigation device...From Mikeou, it gets smoother to Fressinières, almost straight and flat to slightly down if i recall correctly

    6h from Mont Dauphin to Fressinieres on a sunny day (mid June 2013)
    Transition day really nothing interesting...really disappointed that i left the Queyras regional park for this

    There is a bar/resturant and a camping place with a grocery store (nice location) before Fressinieres.
    Fressinieres have a traiteur that is friendly enough and will be willing to sale something even if close if you see someone
    and a bar/restaurant also available in the hamlet

    Aprés quelques difficultés pour suivre l'itinéraire dans la dernière partie, j'ai terminé l'etape dans la Citadelle VAUBAN de MONTDAUPHIN, inscrite au patrmoine mondial de l'UNESCO. Trés bon accueil au GITE LE GLACIER BLEU, Rue CATINAT
    Le gite est situé dans la rue centrale de cette place forte qui demeure un lieu exceptionnel et hors du temps avec ses rues tracées au cordeau et ses maisons à l'architecture trés particulière
    Chambre agréable avec douche. Bon et copieux repas

    We stayed in Guillestre, a nice lively village with shops, restaurants, buses (to Gap, Briancon,...). Had a friendly reception at Hotel/Camping "Le catinat fleuri" and a good dinner at "Le Guillestrin".

    Before entering Pallon (T->M), there's a quite cheap camp site. In 2010, they offered me a place for my tent for only 5 EUR, including hot shower and free WIFI!
    They also have a small supermarket where they sells a few goods for a fair price.
