Route description

Lourtier / Parking P. 1299 - Cabane Brunet

De Lourtier (1087), se rendre à la grande scierie à la sortie du village (pont 1094). Emprunter – souvent à pied – le sentier d’été jusqu’à la route d’alpage de Plénadzeu en coupant la route principale à l’épingle (1204 m). Il est d’usage d’atteindre ce point en partant du parking (1299 m) sur la route de Fionnay. Après 100 m sur la route d’alpage, partir à gauche dans la forêt en suivant le sentier raide qui monte à la clairière du Tongne. Poursuivre par la forêt sur le large chemin bien indiqué, en direction SE. Prendre pied sur la route et la suivre jusqu’à La Cougne (1830 m). De là, continuer par le tracé du sentier d’été qui coupe à plusieurs reprises la route. Une dernière pente plus raide permet d’atteindre l’épaulement où se trouve la cabane.

Variante de Lourtier

Par le Rosay, La Tinte et Plénadzeu. Plutôt en descente.
