Departure below Place de l'Orm, parking. Listen to the stones that mark this Little Vadrouille. They show you the way and tell you about the men and animals who lived in this country. Viewpoint, small lake ideal for a picnic and waterfall (if it has rained recently) complete the route. Your guide: the fox > The numbered cairns refer to the “Little Vadrouilles” booklets which evoke different themes (material and natural heritage, local stories and legends, etc.). They are available at Pom's multi-service points as well as at the châteaux of Termes and Villerouge-Termenès.

Step 1

From the stele, go down the road to the stream. Before the bridge, turn left, cross the bridge on the right (set back from the path, terminal decorated with a Maltese cross, cairn 1, formerly separating civil and religious lands) and follow the path to the left (the cellar of Massac, cairn 2, ceased operations in the late 80s). Cross the bridge, follow the Torgan and take the D 10 on the right for 100 m.

Step 2

Go down the path to the right towards the Cioutat flour mill (cairn 3, 500th century). Continue along the path along the Torgan. It passes near a water reservoir and reaches an intersection. > On the right, 4 m, access to the Hermitage mill (XNUMXth century, cairn XNUMX).

Step 3

Take the lane on the left, the D 10 on the right and, before the house, near a rose garden, the path on the left. He climbs the Arquette (under the slope, Massaguel (cairn 5), a primitive hamlet and Gallo-Roman necropolis, dominates the Dernacueillette pass). Pass the Escoumes dolmen (cairn 6).

Step 4

Leave the main path. Take the path to the left and, in the bend, the path to the left. It leads to the Table des Morts (cairn 7; 577 m) then leads to a wide path. > Access to the top of Cioutat (cairn 8) by the path on the left for 300 m (viewpoint).

Step 5

Follow the path to the right (right, Tres-Peyros dolmen, cairn 9).

Step 6

Cross the D 1610 and take the path opposite, shifted to the left. It rises in the pines. Pass near a cylindrical oven (cairn 10, used for making tiles). Go down the path to the left then by shortcuts and reach the church (cairn 11). Visit the village before returning to the car park.

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!

Pretty little hike. The trail is well marked except for the part up to the hermitage which was tricky. There were butterflies everywhere and many colors of vegetation. The hike is definitely easy, we hiked slowly and it took just under three hours. The town of Massac is very cute with many healthy looking vegetable gardens.

Very nice trip. The map displayed is not in Massac.
