A short, however thrilling trail in parts, with a quite technical final section when you plunge down towards the river Daronne dale. It takes you along track and roads as far as Pierrageai then continues on an interesting path through the botanical part. The section bringing you back to the start, includes an uphill climb on good ground before going over the old bridge below Saint Félicien.

2 points of interest

  • Saint Félicien and its church

    Written records about the village of St Félicien were discovered as from the Xth century. Monks from St Barnard’s collegiate (Romans sur Isère) came here to build a priory. The village developed round the chapel of the priory that then became the parish church. Push the door to discover its interior. The choir is a good example of early Roman art of the Xlth century. The low southern side was partly destroyed and rebuilt towards the end of the Middle Ages. The style is more sober with broken bows.

    Viewing point

    Splendid view of the Daronne Valley


1 - Saint Félicien
Go across the square and left past the old butcher’s shop then right just before the stone porch.

2 – The park
Go across the park and take the road towards Pailharès facing you as you go out of the park. When you reach the sign indicating leaving the village, bear left onto the first road. Turn down onto the track before the last house. The track goes into woodland and becomes more technical as it zigzags down the last few hundred metres. Go over the pretty suspended footbridge to the other side onto the hillside track.

3 – Raillon
Turn left onto the road. Go down to the main road, turn right and carry on along before bearing left towards the campsite. Just after the shallow water crossing take the path to the right along the river and the campsite grass area. An interesting path takes you through the botanical tree gardens.

4 – Brintenas
Continue ahead on the road going uphill. At the top turn right and head towards the hamlet of Brintenas. In the hamlet turn right onto the track going up into the forest. Continue ahead to the road above. Turn left and go as far as the main road. Turn left downhill then immediately left onto the lane. Before the end take the path to your right going over the old bridge. After the bridge bear right onto the path, along the wall of a private property, taking you back to the village.
