The Bees of Cuers

A Cuers walk posted on 23/02/16 by diamsazur. Update : 23/01/18

This is a walk I'm really enjoying at the moment with flowers along the route and a view of the Barres de Cuers.
There's little difficulty, the false-flat is long, after the hives on the descent, so be aware.
The hives are magnificent.

Park in the Cuers cemetery car park.
(D/A) With your back to the car park, turn left and go under the aqueduct. At the fork, turn right and then skip two paths leading off to the right.
At the next fork, go right on the small path that runs along the old stream and join the path.

(1) Ignore the Chemin des Régagnades on the left and take the Chemin des Tournels on the right.
Continue straight ahead through forest.
It follows an old stream which is on your left.
At the cairn, turn left (white route markers on trees) and climb. At the following cairn, turn left again (White markers) and climb again.

Follow the blue markers and first of all climb the false-flat before it start to weave.

(4) Turn right in a northwesterly direction, enjoy the view opposite of the Barres de Cuers. Reach the intersection with the tank.

(5) Take the small path on your right which is located in front of the tank (descent). Be careful, you need to pass around the tank on the longest side. Descend through the Vallon du Réal.

(6) At the fork, take the climbing located to your right (cairn). At the sheep enclosure, take a right-hand bend (a small descending path), leave the wood to reach a crossing toward the sheep pen.

(7) Turn left and take the small path straight ahead to find the ruins on your right.
At the cairn with greenish-yellow markers, turn right, go down a little to see the old stone hives (8).
Continue the descent which joins the large path you took on the outward leg.
Go left and then continue straight downhill, leave the wooden pole with a yellow pipe behind you and find the junction of the Chemin des Régagnades and the Chemin des Tournels paths.

(2) Turn right on the Chemin des Régagnades, and return to the intersection.

(1) Return on the path you took on the outward leg back the cemetery car park (D/A).
