Starting point: secondary road D560 that branches off Route de l’Europe road, direction to “Site de Saint Barthélémy” tourist site.
From “Site de Saint Barthélémy” tourist site, follow the unsurfaced path leading off to the right. Once you have walked past the fence, you meet a anti wildfire trail (DFCI trail).
Follow the green waymarks until you reach a second barrier. Once you have gone through it, take a right turn after about 218 yards and follow direction to the cave dwelling. Take the path alongside the eastern side of the cave dwelling: Follow it as it goes uphill until bauxite rocks are met. Keep following the waymarks until you reach “Tholos de la Lauve” site (megalithic grave).
Take a right turn and follow the pathway going downhill up to seeded areas (cereals grown by a hunting club). It will take you to a hunting house. You will soon meet a wide unsurfaced track. Take a right turn and follow the track heading downhill until you eventually find the car park.
Follow this waymarked trail only when it is allowed. Salernes tourist information informs you on the opening of forest areas.
