Step 1

From the stone stele, enter the village route du Fininés, near the old weighing scale for goods, take the departmental 10 leading to the Col du Prat. The Pech de la Tuilerie, near the D10, is a former mining site used for making tiles and other coarse pottery.

Step 2

From the Col du Prat, the path on the left, then the path on the right joins the road higher up. We are in an undergrowth of light oaks along a plot that is often wasteland. Do 155m on the D 410.

Step 3

Turn right on the old way to Dernacueillette. We reach a small pass which dominates the Valley of Maisons. join the D10. Go past the mill (now private) with its spillway and two millstones.

Step 4

Turn right on a path. The Lavalette site, a “geological scramble”, offers a large cliff with its red and black veins. Protected by holm oaks and boxwood, ancient cavities once served as refuges for men. go up along the stream to a track.

Step 5

Take the Sautadou motorable track to the right and the one towards Roc d'en Jaune, where the Scots pines cling to the slope.

Step 6

A round trip of about 850 m allows you to reach this ocher mineral point which, from its 527 meters high, dominates the Davejean depression. Finally, the cedars with their blue needles and the heather with sometimes charred thorns line the path of the descent. we find the D10 further down to the village.

Be careful, the fire risk is often high, especially in summer, and can lead to flower bed closures. Find out before you go consulting the fire risk map for outdoor activities.
Fires strictly prohibited. Do not smoke and never throw cigarette butts in nature. Fires are numerous and catastrophic in our region. In the event of a fire or accident: give alert 18 or 112 from a cell phone.
Protect yourself from the sun and take enough water with you.
Avoid picking flowers and plants. Take all your trash. Close fences and keep dogs on a leash in pasture areas, villages and protected areas.

Mountain bike routes: the routes are often shared with hikers or other users (cars, tractors, etc.). Be careful and always anticipate that a pedestrian may be present around a bend to have time to brake if necessary. Pedestrians have priority in principle, slow down at crossings or stop if the configuration of the terrain requires you to do so.
Thank you and happy hiking!
