Gorges d’Héric

December 6, cloudless sky, 15°…

A perfect day to discover the Gorges d’Héric, a place we were planning to visit since long.
The drive by car through the Parc Naturel Régional du Haut-Languedoc to Mons-la-Trivalle, is beautiful. Close from here our walk will start, but first a good cup of coffee on the terrace of Auberge du Caroux.
We park the car in Le Verdier at the base of the gorges and start the beautiful aller-retour walk of 10 km, with 5 km of climbing and 315 meters difference in altitude.
In this late autumn it was very quiet, but that will be different in the holiday season. We spotted a lot of nice places to picnic and to paddle. In short, a sight-seeing trip which is definitely  well worth the effort from La Maison Chabbert!
