Walk through the forest until you get to the panel in front of a house, then continue down the length of the private property. When you arrive at La Bourbonnyre, continue following the direction for Marignier Vieux Pont. At the reservoir, continue walking down the road as far as the road sign, then take the path on your right after the stream which takes you to Nierfait.
