On the road which goes from Le Pla to Quérigut, turn right onto the forest road of Laurenti (white marker painted green "Route Forestière du Laurenti 1886"). Follow it to the Laurenti forest refuge where it becomes a track.

1 - DEPARTURE

Take the path (GRP around the Pays du Donezan) starting between the pines and beeches, leaving the stream on your left. The departure is very smooth. But very quickly, the slope straightens up to a small clearing. Cross a small stream and again the slope is sustained. After a straight left bend, continue on the ledge to arrive at the Counc hut. Leave the Counc hut on your right and continue on the ledge. At the end, a small steep slope awaits you. Once you have crossed this steep slope, you have a beautiful view of the "Roc Blanc". Only a few more minutes between the pines and a small scree to cross and you are at Laurenti.

2 - LAURENTIAN POND

You can walk around the pond.
The return takes the same path to the Forestier refuge car park.
