From Usellières, follow the farm road southwards for a few hundred metres until you reach the Alp Mont Forcià fork. Take the road that with numerous hairpin bends leads into the forest.
After the hairpin bend for Alp Epée on the left, carry on towards the right until you reach the Alp Mont Forcià in a short period of time and where the road ends.
Alternatively, it is possible to reach this point faster by following the pretty path that from the area of the monumental larches heads up the steep valley and leads directly above the mountain pasture
Continue along the path that heads to the right through the pastures and keep to the right bank of the river. The path will now be difficult to make out. Continue on the moraines and, once you exit the valley, head to the right that will take you to the edge of the moraine from where, once past some rocks, you will come to the bivouac.
Equipment: blankets, mattresses, pillows, pots.
