Description

From the carpark at the refuge of the Col d'Allos, head up the mountain. Head left onto the path which leads to “Baisse de Prenier”. You will cross Alpine pastures which provide beautiful views over the Ubaye Valley.
Go over Baisse de Prenier and continue along the path which heads south; The village if La Foux is nestled away down below on the right.
Go past the path on the left, heading down to Allos, and continue on the Crête de Cherouèche heading towards the Crête de Rochegrand, whose domed peak can be seen.
At the end of the route, the path slopes gently upwards to reach the summit. 

From Rochegrand, you will have a genuine 360° panoramic view: Cimet (3020m), Mont Pelat (3051m), Autapie. To the north stands Grande Séolane (2909m) with its characteristic shape and, as a backdrop, the glaciers of the Écrins mountains can be seen in clear weather.

Recommandations

A hike which is appropriate for families, but keep an eye on children once you reach the summit.
This is an area where sheep and cows are put out to pasture in the summer: remember to shut gates, don’t go too close to the herds and keep dogs on their leads.
