This flower-filled family excursion introduces you to a variety of farming features from a bygone time.
Setting out from the village of Réallon, lying in a mid-mountain area, roam the pastured mountainsides. This itinerary will plunge you into a pastoral environment, taking you though large agricultural terraces on a par with the most beautiful landscapes in Serre-Ponçon. As you round a bend, you will come across the mountain stream of Maou Riou before heading back in the extensive meadows.


  1. From the car park, cross the bridge and at the next crossroads take the road to the left. Go past the houses and on to the end of the road.
  2. At the very end, take the path opposite. After passing the Maou Riou mountain stream, head down into the woods following the stream.
  3. Carry on downhill and then at the next intersection, go right onto the GR path.
  4. When you come to the road, turn right. When you reach the car park in « Charrière de la pisse », take the road on the right towards the church of St-Pélade. This will bring you back to the car park in La Coste.
