From the Rifugio, follow the road into the valley for a few hundred meters and take the gravel road on the left up the mountain towards Colle Barant. Near the pass, there is a refuge: Rifugio Barant, which is open for long weekends in the summer. After the pass, there is a small botanical garden (Giardino Botanico Peyronel), which is worth a quick peek. Take the gravel road down to Colle della Maddelana and Rifugio Willy Jervis.

From there, take the road down the valley; take the mule track to shortcut some of the corners. After a while, over the bridge, you reach the village Villanova, where Trattoria Villanova provides meals and the key to the Posto Tappa.
