  • Access: Leave Tarascon to the south on the D8 towards Vicdessos. At the end of Niaux, after the church, take the first turning on the left. Just after, on the right, the D156 takes you to Baychon, then Arquizat, and finally Norgeat, where you can park your car in the small parking lot on the left in the middle of the village.

    (D/A) Park in the Norgeat parking lot (890m) and walk 40m down to the watering hole. Then take the lane that joins the track on the other side of the Font Vive stream. Go up a little to the right, and the path starts just before the wash-house, on the left.
    Follow the Chemin de la Croix de Loubières. After a quarter of an hour, you leave this path, which continues towards Norrat, to take a path on the right, which you also leave after 30 m. Take the path on the left, which continues towards Norrat. Turn left onto the forest path. On the side of the valley, you follow this path into a forest.

    0h45 - TRACK (1095m). You come to a track. This forest track would take you as far as the Miglos rock at 1708m, but you're heading back down towards Norgeat. Follow the track back to the village.

    1h20 - A - You're back in Norgeat.
