A walk for all seasons. 1000m climbing. 6 hours walking. GPS file
Thanks to Anne-Marie, who organised it. A circular walk on the first snows of the year (in January!). We left the cars at Villefranche de Conflent station and caught the Petit Train Jaune (the little yellow train as it is affectionately known) to Joncet. Once there, a steep climb zig-zagging up the hillside took us to the hamlet of Flassa and a pre-Romanesque chapel dedicated to Saint Marcel (11th century).
Unfortunately the chapel was shut. So we turned round and continued our climb up to the soulane (the sunny side of the mountain) overlooking the valley.
Lunch was in the Roquefumade hut (clean, could sleep 4, plenty of wood nearby). Then we followed the “Vauban Path” through the Coronat forest.
Past Fort Libéria and back down to Villefranche-de-Conflent.This entry was posted on Monday, February 6th, 2012 at 12:23 pm and is filed under Uncategorized. You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2.0 feed. You can leave a comment below, or trackback from your own site.
