Follow the tarmac road, straight on, then continue uphill on the farm track which crosses the Sainte Marie stream. Take the path that leads up through the Pramaria forest, crossing the forest track several times. You'll reach the refuge once out of the forest.
    For the return, backtrack to below the refuge and, immediately on your right, take the GR5 hiking trail (Val Cenis Termignon/Bellecombe) as far as Pré Vaillant. At an intersection, turn left onto a path leading down to Val Cenis Lanslebourg (or Fontaniou and Pierre Longues). The path crosses the forest track and joins the farm track which will take you back to the little tarmac road you started on.
