near Orgeix, Occitanie (France)
We started this walk in Orgeix and the views from here are amazing. especially towards Orlu.
The first part of the walk is lovely, alongside the river L'Oriege, following the GR 107 all the way into the centre of Ax Les Thermes. You start out at 800m. and the part to Ax Les Thermes remains more or less at this heighth.
After crossing the old N20 the track becomes a narrow road,which, while passing Les Tilleuls, becomes a track again leading up to the Rocher de La Vierge which provides you with a splendid view across the city and the mountainsides above it.
After the steep descent we circulated a little through the old centre of the town before continuing 'La Porteille d'Orgeix'.
After crossing the old N20 again a road climbs steeply towards Entre Serres after which it becomes a beautiful track again.
On this part of the track you will see twice a junction indicating a track that will lead you to Sarrat de l'Etang, an orry situated at 1120metres.
We continuedthe wonderfully shaded track towards the hamlet of Fournit at 940m. and shortly before you reach that you will have a very nice view of Ascau, situated at 1040m.
The track goes up a little more to 990 m..when you arrive at La Porteille, from which point you will see the valley. What follows is a beautiful descent giving you many splendid views up to the moment that you reach Orgeix again.
