From Ranchot, follow the signs marked Voie des Salines (VDS), towards Rans. Leaving Rans, a fine cycle track runs beside the D31 road, crossing through the forest. There are some slopes, but they are modest. Reaching the end of the cycle track, signposting indicates the way to the Saline Royale to the right.
It’s possible to continue up to the town of Salins-les-Bains via the Voie des Salines route, the way here shared with the Tour du Jura loisirs route.
Ranchot: there are several restaurant terraces where you can eat beside the canal
