This walk will lead you to the Knights Templar village of La Couvertoirade. Take the GR 71 to the northern edge of the Luc estate, on the right of the D 273 road. Follow the GR to La Couvertoirade without changing direction. After passing through an oak forest, descend gradually to the Virenque Gorges, the sides of which are planted with ancient oak trees, the remains of a medieval forest which used to cover the entire Causses region.
Then follow the dried-out river bed for a short while and, on the right, climb up towards La Couvertoirade.
