Clinging to a rocky spur, between orchards and chestnut groves, Olargues dominates the green valley of the Jaur, where the massive silhouettes of the Caroux and Espinouse mountains loom in the background.
The path starts on the Voie Verte, in the direction of Saint Pons. The signs quickly guide you to the right and the Col du Bouis. Then the small road towards the Rautely bridge which becomes a path in the process. Try to find the "Peyro Escrito". Then the steep climb takes you to the hamlet of La Salle. This is followed by 2.5km (1.5miles) of slightly uphill track. Shortly before the Col de la Bacoulette, the path descends towards Malviès, then Olargues, along a steep path.
