Anyone has ever taken the route instead of the forrest (or both and can compare) while descending into Roncesvalles from Orisson?
Apparently there is a chapel and a monolith for Roland? Is it worth it or the forrest offers more?
and if you have picture -- the better ;)
When you arrive at Lepoeder you can go straigth through the forest (scenic, but very steep), or turn right by the easier paved road to Ibañeta chapel, and then a final short path to Roncesvalles. This is indicated at Lepoeder in the signpost as "Alternativa suave" (meaning "soft")
