6 July 2017 – Forêt de Parlatges

With the return of the hot weather we propose another forest walk, in the area between Parlatges and St Pierre de la Fage.

The forecast for Thursday is for a largely sunny day, with temperatures reaching 30°. We propose a walk of about 5 km in the forest below St Pierre de la Fage. The walk is all on forest tracks, and is all down hill for the first half, and uphill for the rest, with a total climb of about 200 m, much of it shaded. At the lower points there are good views down to Parlatges and beyond towards St Etienne and Soubes.

As usual we shall meet at the Luteva Cinema at 8:50, for departure at 9:00. The walk will start from the walkers car park at St Pierre de la Fage – just after the main roundabout in the village, on the road to La Vacherie, turn right on the narrow road indicating the car park, which you reach after nearly 1 km. We should start from here at about 9:30, and be back in Lodeve by 12:30.

Leader: Andrew
Distance: ~5 km, 200 m climb
