Top 5 easy walks

We have selected for you, 5 ideas of small hikes to go with children. Do not hesitate to push the doors of the Tourist Offices to learn more, or even to gear yourself with the D-Izzy guide, the hiking guide of the Dévoluy (which includes 19 hikes for all levels) or the IGN map specific to the Dévoluy massif.


La cascade de Saute-Aure

Were you looking for an idea for an easy and fun walk with children? Starting from the Col du Festre, have the Saute-Aure waterfall as your goal. In less than 3 km, you will reach the foot of the waterfall where you can enjoy a bucolic view. The place lends itself wonderfully to apicnic break or a snack. Behind you, the mineral Tête de La Cluse, La Joue du Loup and more broadly, the entire eastern balcony of the Dévoluy massif.

Beware: you are evolving in a summer pasture area where you may encounter flocks of sheep, guarded by a shepherd and protection dogs. Stay on the trail and adopt a calm attitude, without sudden gestures! Finally, remember to close the gates behind you so that the flocks do not escape.

Note: the Saute-Aure waterfall only flows in the spring or after heavy rains.

Le collet du Tât

From La Joue du Loup or Superdévoluy, this walk will take you to a small pass: the collet du Tât. It is perhaps one of the easiest places to access to enjoy a panoramic view on the main peaks of the Dévoluy massif: the Bure peak of course, but also the Obiou or the Grand Ferrand.

At the Collet du Tât, you will find a orientation table as well as a picnic table.

Beware: this walk does not have shaded areas.

The plus: the round trip to the Baumes ridge, located a few dozen meters vertical elevation above the collet du Tât, accessible to children over 12 years, by a trail that can be judged as technical.

The Tour du Puy

This 4.5 km loop starting from Superdévoluy, can be travelled in an all-terrain stroller. Indeed, the route only takes a fairly wide path and in no way technical.
Midway, you will meet a belvedere arranged. In front of you, the Etroits gorges, the village of Saint Étienne en Dévoluy and the Farraud mountain

The village of Agnières en Dévoluy

This short walk of less than 4 km from La Joue du Loup, will take you to the village of Agnières en Dévoluy. You will have to cross the road twice, be careful. In the village, take a break at the bar and restaurant l’Étincelle and refresh yourself at the village fountain.

Themed trail idea: the adventure game “Altaïr and the musical forest”(french language). Games, riddles and musical breaks for a beautiful moment shared with the family (information at the Tourist Offices or at l’Étincelle).

Le Puits des Bans

This is a round trip to one of the special places of the massif: the Puits des Bans. This short hike is ideal for a picnic break by the water: you will walk along the river La Souloise from downstream, at the village of Saint Disdier.
This walk can be difficult for children under 10 years old: slopes, uneven ground, passages on footbridges with a handrail. No difficulty nevertheless until the Cerise bridge where you can enjoy a picnic area.

To note: the Puits des Bans is one of the most accessible pit of the massif. With a depth of 200 meters, it is the first cave of the massif to have been explored! Ask at the Tourist Offices for a supervised caving trip.
