At the start of the beacon 394, take the wide military track which gradually goes up above the valley of Valmasque. At the beacon 393, do not take the pathway on the right leading to Agnel, but continue the ascent by the track. Get off this track, just before a damaged bridge, at the beacon 374. Take the pathway on the left that will cross the sloping edge of the Vastière des Dragons along the stream. The slope will suddenly straighten up. Through small zigzags, continue to go up until you reach a sloping edge again. At the beacon 98, do not take the left pathway and continue straight ahead to cross a small rise. At the beacon 98a, go down a few meters and take the bridge to the right of the dam to reach the mountain hut of Vamasque (Refuge de Valmasque).
From the mountain hut, take the footbridge to reach the trail. Turn left at the beacon 98a. Continue straight ahead at the beacon 98 and go down till the track (beacon 393). Turn right and follow the track along the river till the road and the parking lot.
