A circular walk in the hills between Mont St Baudille and St Guilhem
This is a walk of about 5km (though with an optional extension to add 2km) on a broad country track around a small hill in the valley between the St Baudille plateau and the St Guilhem hills. It consists of gradual descents and ascents, with a total climb of about 100m.
The starting point is at about km 4.5 on the narrow D122, which starts just outside Arboras (we walked along a bit of this road a couple of weeks ago in our walk from Arboras). We will park at a col where the start and return tracks both meet the road, and there is a clear area for parking (coordinates 43°44’N, 3°30’E, GPS 4842.8, 540.2). This is about 1km beyond the Gite at la Font du Griffe.
As usual we will meet outside the Luteva Cinema at 9:50, ready to depart at 10:00. We should get to the starting point for the walk at about 10:40, and be back in Lodeve by 13:30.
