Mountain pasture below the Chaine des Perrons and Loriaz. Easy access. At the arrival, hut with restaurant and dormitories.

Take the forest track at the top of the village on the right. Follow it for several
hundred metres and after the third bend, take the footpath going uphill to your
right. This joins the path coming from le Morzay. Follow the track for a further
200 m. Bear right into the forest and cross the the Nant de Loriaz stream
(1 652 m). The path winds up to the plateau above the tree line. At the Croix de
Loriaz, a path to the right leads up to le Crot and one final effort will bring you to
the mountain refuge in the pasture.

Others itineraries available from Le Nant, Le Sizeray.
