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
