The Jouvayrac trail

The crest walking trail that overlooks the ancient Hospitaller Commandery in Martrin provides a spectacular panoramic view over the Grands Causses area and the hills of the Albi region.In the Martrin village square, head your way towards the Grande Croix which is situated in the upper part of the village in the direction of Coupiac, then pass between the two houses and carry on above the stadium. Take to the left towards the plateau overlooking the village.Once you have reached the crest walking trail, take to the right towards La Bertarié. When the weather is fine, the site offers a breathtaking scenery. At the tarred track, take right for a few metres and at the intersection with the dirt road, turn to the left. You will then catch sight, further down to the right of the roof of the St Clément sanctuary fountain covered with old slatestones. The path then runs down to the bottom of the valley before rising uphill towards la Frayssinette.When leaving the farm, walk above the stable and follow to the left the dirt road that winds its way up to the woodland below the Mas de Clary and the Glauzure. The hamlet of Jouvayrac will soon be within your sight.In the hamlet, take to the left the path that slopes down towards the brook. The path rises throughout a beautiful chestnut grove that was in former times owned by the Martrin Commandery.

Ambiance

Martrin welcomes you to enjoy a great getaway on the other side of the plateau that overlooks the village. This hiking loop leads you from small valleys to hamlets and takes you across a beautiful chestnut grove which was formerly owned by the Martrin Commandery. The scenery from the crest walking trail is really breathtaking, but remember to save some energy for the final slope!

Advice

La Pyrale du buis est active de mai à octobre, les chenilles mangent les feuilles des buis et ainsi les dénudent. Elles descendent des arbres et se déplacent grâce à des fils (phénomène gênant en randonnée mais sans danger).
