This beautiful walk first goes along the banks of La Jonte and then rises to the Causse Noir. Here you can take a little detour to the remains of the hermitage of Saint-Michel. Further on the Causse you pass the old rock formation Le Champignon Préhistorique and before you descend you have a fantastic panorama of the Gorges of the Jonte. Along the way you will certainly be able to observe griffon vultures from very close by.

Corniches du Causse Noir.
The hike goes first via a dirt road along the banks of La Jonte and then through a beautiful forest to start the steep climb to the Col Ermitage Saint-Michel. Here you can go back and forth to see the remains of the Ermitage Saint-Michel. You have to climb here via a metal ladder. Then you walk on the corniche du Causse Noir where you occasionally have a glimpse of the Gorges de la Jonte. Further on you come to a very old rock formation that bears the appropriate name Le Champignon Préhistorique. Here you have a beautiful view of the Causse Méjean. On the last part you will come to a very beautiful viewpoint on the Gorges de la Jonte. You can enjoy the view on a nice bench before you start the descent.
