Very scenic loop. A few switchbacks to begin the downhill, but overall flowy and fast.

Access Info

Park in le buet, continue down towards vallorcine, next left route de couterey, continue uphill.
When you see the chalet/refuge at the top in a big clearing, look for the trail heading downhill just before a large boulder.
