After finding the ‘cache’, you can enjoy an 8.4km walk (approx 3 hours). A description of the route and a map are provided below. Follow the white / yellow markers and then the red / white.
Walk up the little tarmac road. When the road starts to descend, take the tarmac path that climbs up to the right, between the terraces, and which quickly becomes a track going off into the woods. Keep following the main track at all times.
The path crosses a hamlet in ruins, and then arrives at the crossroads of the cross of Montplot.
Take the right hand path. You will then join another slope that is much more open, as a result of the 1999 storms. You will overlook the village of Préaux and the Annonay basin. Then take the track that climbs to the spectacular Montplot hamlet. At Montplot, follow
the sign marked ‘Saint-Victor, 4,1km’.
Take the main track to the ridge for a magnificent view over the valleys of the Daronne and the Doux. Descend beside the property called VIGNET and follow the small road across the fields.
At Brudonnes, follow the sign marked ‘Saint-Victor, 2,9km’. Continue descending on this small road, winding in and out of the terraced fields. At the fork, take the left hand turning that climbs until you find a path going off to the right. Descend by this path and, when you reach the road, turn left to get back to Saint-Victor.
