The silent forest cover of Silver Firs, populated by enormous ants, gives a mysterious character to this ascent. Then, the landscape of the lake offers hikers wonder and serenity.
From Andrieux car park at the level of the fountain place cross the main road in front of the small chapel and go towards the end of the village in the direction of the pine forest.. At the level of the entrance to the National Park indicated by signposts, climb the track going up to the left. At an altitude of 1 400 m, leave the track going towards la Chapelle-en-Valgaudemar and des Portes hamlet (a bit higher up) on the left, staying on the same path. The ascent continues for some time in the forest which brightens up progressively.. Walk carefully through the last rocky passages. A large cairn signals your arrival at the lakes. Return using the same itinerary.
From Saint-Firmin, take the D985A/route de La Chapelle-en-Valgaudemar, continue on this road to the Andrieux hamlet.
