Description of the route

Leave the car at Valnontey, in the municipality of Cogne, then take the dirt road (itinerary no. 22) that runs alongside the Valnontey stream to its end. From here, continue along trail 22. After around 500 m, ignore trail 22C on the left, which heads to Money Bivouac and continue along the same road taking the valley floor on the bank of the stream. This leads you to a junction: route 22G continues on the right for Leonessa Bivouac, while the trails that go off to the left lead to the bivouacs of Borghi and Martinotti. Go up the mule track to reach Herbétet, where you will find a park guard’s lodge. Continue along the trail to the left, ignoring route 18B on the right, and go into the valley of Herbétet until you come to the Leonessa bivouac.
