The path first goes through a wooded section then leads to a plateau. Take right up to the D31 and walk across the road to the left. Turn immediately to the right on a tarred track towards Puech Ricard.

Village de St-Rome de Cernon

La commune de Saint-Rome de Cernon résulte de la fusion réalisée en 1840 de l'ancienne commune de Montclarat avec celle de saint-Rome de Cernon. L'homme a choisi le territoire de Saint-Rome comme lieu d'habitat dès les temps préhistoriques, grottes de Sargels, dolmens du bois de Laumière. L'occupation humaine s'y est poursuivie aux époques romaine et médiévale, comme en témoignent de nombreux vestiges : châteaux de Saint-Rome, Mélac, Montclarat et Laumière. Le village actuel s'est développé à la fin du 18ème siècle, lors de la construction de la route d'Albi aux Cévennes et au 19ème siècle, construction du chemin de fer. Le bourg devint le siège de foires importantes et de nombreux commerces florissants.

Box tree moths are active from May to October. During the caterpillar phase, they feed on the leaves of box trees. They crawl down trees and move on long silken threads, although these threads are annoying when hiking they do not pose any health risk
