At the bottom of a rocky valley, the track goes up to the source of the Vénéon and comes out on the Carrelet plain... The verdure of this "plain «contrasts with the abrupt clefts of the Ailefroide which dominate the refuge with a drop of 2000 m. The track has been subject to a lot of restoration work by the teams in the National Park national to make it accessible and pleasurable for hikers.
Either take the path at the bottom of the car park on the edge of the Vénéon torrent or in the village passing the Maison de la Montagne... The itinerary follows the right bank of the Vénéon crossing several secondary torrents equipped with walkways in order to reach Carrelet refuge. The installation of a stone pavement on parts of the track has enabled us to fight against erosion linked to hikers crossing the stream. Return by using the same itinerary.
