5 April 2018 – St Michel

2013-06-20 10-45-54.JPG

This is a relatively easy walk across the plateau, starting at St Michel, a small village to the east of Le Caylar. The walk is about 6 km, along undulating footpaths, tracks and country roads. It is probably still too early for many spring flowers, but we may get to see a Dolmen and a Puit.

This week the weather is expected to be warm and mostly sunny, though rather windy. We propose a circular walk along the valley to the east of St Michel, going out along a hillside footpath (which may be a bit muddy after recent rain) and returning mostly along a quiet country road. At the far end of the walk we will visit the Puits de Conques, and it will be possible to climb up to the Dolmen des peyrières.

As usual we shall meet outside the Luteva Cinema at 9:50, ready to depart at 10:00. The walk itself will start from the parking area behind the church in St Michel at about 10:45. We should be back in Lodeve by about 13:30. The village is about 6 km from Le Caylar, along a turning (D152) off the D9 towards St Pierre de la Fage.

Distance: ~ 6 km


5 November 2015 – Le Puech and its Dolmen

This is a circular walk from Le Puech up to the Dolmen on the hill above the village. The return is via Mas Delon. The overall distance is about 6km, but the first part does involve a substantial climb of about 200m on a hillside path.

2014-01-09 11-54-22The walk starts at Le Peuch and follows the ‘petite randonee’ signposted to the Dolmen. The first part of this is a narrow footpath through woods and up the hillside, rising about 200m over the 2km to the Dolmen. This path may be a little difficult in places. From the Dolmen the path rises gently to the hilltop and then descends to pick up the country road back to Mas Delon. From there we return by road to the starting point.

We will meet at the Luteva Cinema at 9:50 for a 10:00 departure. We expect to be back in Lodeve by 13:30.
