Itinerary description

A pretty walk, which starts in Le Saix (park in front of the old school). The walk starts at 810 and goes to 1310 meters, which a total height difference of 560m. The total walk took us some 3 hours to complete.

The first part is easy to find and follows the road to the Abbaie de Clausonne. After that the trail is marked by yellow stripes. In the fields one must stay vigilant, after that it is easy to find.
