Continue straight on, beside the N 12, before crossing this road via a bridge and continuing in the direction of Le Prest. At the crossroads with the D 1, follow signs for La Fontaine.
Follow the V8 green and white panels up until you join the Rigole d’Hilvern Channel. 

Take special care on the D 28 road (after Le Beau Chêne), at the crossroads with the D 25 road and at the crossroads with the D 44 road at Bel-Orient.
