21 April 2016 – Mas Delon to Rabejac

The forecast for next Thursday is not good, but if the rain holds off at least until the afternoon we will do a circular walk from Mas Delon. The walk is about 5 km, over low hills to Rabejac and then returning via Les Hemies. We have done this walk in the past, but not for several years.

There are some beautiful views, south to Lac Salagou, across to Mont St Baudille and north to Lodeve. The walk is largely on wide tracks some of which are paved. There are 2 short ascents of less than 100 m, and one small river to cross on firm, flat stones.

As usual we shall meet outside the Luteva Cinema at 9:50, ready to depart at 10:00. The walk will start at the bus shelter on the way into Mas Delon (just by Mike and Margaret’s house) at about 10:20. We should be back in Lodeve by 13:00, but …

Mike and Margaret would like to offer those who can stay, a light lunch after the walk. Please let us know if you are able to come, either by commenting on this post, or by an e-mail directly to Andrew.

Leaders: Mike and Margaret

Distance: 5km


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.
