A circular walk starting beside the Lergue at the hamlet of Laulo, and climbing up to the volcanic Auverne plateau beside Lake Salagou
This walk is about 7km, mostly on tracks and quiet roads, and it rises about 150m. We start at Laulo, a hamlet just across the Lergue from Salelles du Bosc, on the road to Mas Audran and Lacoste. The first two kilometers of the walk are all uphill, on a path through the escarpment woods that leads up to the plateau of l’Auverne. This is the flat hill that overlooks the Salagou dam from the north side. At the far side of the plateau we get views down to the lake, and then into the lower Salagou valley and across the Lergue. The track descends, above Mas Audran and then back to Laulo.
As usual we shall meet outside the Luteva Cinema at 9:50, ready to leave at 10:00. We should start the walk from Laulo at about 10:25, and be back in Lodeve by 13:00.
