  • This hike will take you to the summit of Roc Blanc, overlooking the Etang du Laurenti, to dominate Donezan, also known as "Petit Québec Ariégeois".

  • Access: The Laurenti forest road is not recommended due to its poor condition. To reach the start of the hike, take either the Bruyante forest road from Mijanès, or the Bosc Nègre forest road at the Col des Hares in Quérigut. Take one of the 2 forest roads until you reach the refuge du Laurenti parking lot.

    (D/A) The path leads off to the right of the torrent between fir and beech trees. The start is gentle. In fact, it's an old taffy trail. The slope soon becomes steeper, and you're on a rocky path. Watch your ankles.

    1h10 - ETANG DU LAURENTI. Follow the path to the pond. Go around it to the right. The grass is soft and moist. It's flat... After the knoll, turn right into a small valley occupied by scree and rhododendrons. The path is generally well marked. The climb continues in a sort of suspended valley. Small flats alternate with steep slopes.

    2h10 - COL DU LAURENTI (2200m). After a couple of hairpin bends, the path bends to the right and climbs to a grassy ridge. In front of you is the Col du Laurenti, and at your feet a small lake that dries up in summer. Follow this small lake to the left to reach the col, then climb up a sort of half-grass corridor that leads to a traverse below the Pic where you arrive (3h30).

    6h30 - A - Return by the same route.
