A route to discover the natural and human environment

This route will take you across the plateau then as if on a balcony over the Bromme, embedded by its hillsides. It is both easy and rich. Signs referring to birds and flora help the visitor to discover the natural environment and the human activities which over time have shaped this land into what it is today. The route is short and easy to ride except for a short intense descent on a rocky section.

Points of interest:

  • Protected Natural Ara of Mayrinhac, landmarked Natura 2000 :
    a very pretty village, renovated traditional habitat, a church with a thousand relics, outstanding arbors in box wood for the medium height mountains of Carladez.

Waypoints (in French only)

  • 01sur la place, dos à l’église, se diriger d’abord à gauche en direction des chemins de randonnée balisés puis prendre immédiatement à droite à la fourche. Le chemin carrossable traverse les cultures et entame la descente en amont des lignes à haute tension.
  • 02A l’intersection suivante, descendre sur la droite. Attention, le chemin descend fortement, prudence nécessaire. Après un coude serré sur la gauche, l’itinéraire se poursuit en balcon à flanc de coteau et fait face au site hydro-électrique du barrage de la Bromme, situé à Rueyres.Le chemin remonte progressivement sur le plateau pour revenir sur Mayrinhac.
