Access

From the centre of Belloc, follow the road towards Léran then, after 1 km, turn right towards the campsite. Start of the walk.

Itinerary

Take the small road through the fields below the campsite, making sure that you close the gate, and follow the road for about 1.5 km which leads down to the entrance to a field. Follow it on your right and then take the path along the river. You will enter the Touyre Gorges. Continue to the large block of stone, pass below a cliff (rock-climbing site, 26 routes for beginners to intermediate climbers). Continue the walk through this rural setting. Cross the river at the small bridge (cross using the rocks if the bridge is destroyed) and join the trail and walk to the ruins of an old forge (cross a magnificent stone bridge on the way). The path separates into two. Follow the path on the right to Queille Castle. Pass below the castle and alongside the small cemetery and take the path back to the village of Belloc (3 km). At the crossroads, continue straight ahead and pass below the barns and a cattle enclosure on the way to the crossroads (wayside cross on your right). Turn left and descend to Belloc (end of the walk).
