The easternmost suc in Velay, the Lizieux Peak (Pic du Lizieux) in the municipality of Araules, Haute-Loire, overlooks a vast basalt plateau. The Bonas trail leads to the Lizieux Peak: its summit, which rises to an altitude of 1,388 metres, offers a superb 360° panoramic view of the surrounding unspoilt landscapes. An orientation table helps visitors to spot the Lignon Valley, the Vivarais mountains, Mount Mézenc, the Meygal massif, and even the Alps mountain range on a clear day!
The easy loop walk lasting around 1h30 is accessible to walkers of all levels of ability, as well as children, providing they have the proper footwear. Wild food lovers can take advantage of this beautiful hike on the Lizieux massif to pick some of the blueberries, raspberries or mushrooms that line the path!
This remarkable environment, part of which is classified as a Natura 2000 zone, is also appreciated in winter, when many cross-country skiers arrive.
