Description

Family walk that allows you to see most of the Gorges de la Méouge without getting too tired! This trail is not recommended to people scared of heights and very young children.


Follow the road towards the gorges of the Méouge and go down the path on the left along the stone wall. After the Romanesque bridge (which offers a very nice view on the river), take the path that goes up to the left and follow the GR de Pays. Walk along the ruins of the Pomet mill. A few meters further, turn right towards St Pierre Avez then continue straight ahead.
The path runs along the river on a balcony, bypasses the "Banc du Bouc" (former cemetery of Pomet) and reaches a picnic area.
At the path junction, leave the GR de Pays to follow the PR markings to the right (yellow). Cross the footbridge to join the road.
When on the road, take the path in front of you, which used to link the village of Pomet to the gardens located in the picnic area. The ruin (former "Jas") was used to store some tools and as a shelter ...
Following the road, walk down to reach your  starting point. Walk along the Banc du Bouc and move  forwards  to get an overview of the route. A panel presents some characteristics of the area.
