A circular walk of about 8 km on quiet roads to the west of Cabrières.
This is an easy, though fairly long, circuit from Cabrières, all on quiet country roads. We leave the village by the D124E4 and ascend, following the valley of the Ruisseau des Caviès, for about 2.5 km, climbing about 100 m. We then cross over to the valley of Les Pitrous for the return.
This walk involves a ford, where the river flows straight across the road. The water is not deep (no more than 2 cm, unless we get heavy rain in the next few days), but there are no proper stepping stones, so you need shoes or boots that can cope with this. The weather is forecast to be warm and sunny, but windy.
As usual we shall meet outside the Luteva Cinema at 09:50 ready to leave at 10:00. We should start the walk at about 10:40, from near the Marie in Cabrières. There are parking places along most of the main road through the village, all the way to the Cave Cooperative (which is just after the Marie). We should be back in Lodeve by 13:30.
Distance: 8 km
