The Circuit des Bories n°15 – Easy 8km – 3h

The circuit of the Bories N°15 Chateaunneuf Val Saint Donat ©

Departure from Chateaunneuf Val St Donat, in front of the school


This circuit meanders between the jas and bories that dot the Lure mountain. In the heart of the village, a small paved road guides you to the crossroads of 4 tracks. Take the right one for 15min.
After passing near the equestrian center, turn left on a track strewn with Lauzes (stone slab) raw material of our constructions. After passing near a sheepfold still in operation and a beautiful dry stone shelter planted on the edge of the path, you reach the Borie de Mathieu, the highest point of the circuit. The return by the sheepfolds of Combe Belle and that of Emilie will be without difficulty. These shelters for men and their herds bear witness to the imagination that their builders must have had to design, from the Slates torn from the ground, these vestiges of a not so distant past.
