|Seranon Crêtes de Bauroux - walk / hike|
What is obvious is that in times of old the village was prosperous supporting a large community and church. When you look down into the valley, part of the answer may be in the fertile valley floors and cultivated land. The walk has the distinguishing GR markers (red and white) and there is a fork in the path before you reach the village – take the lower path (left). This continues on an easy gradient along the base of the escarpment until you reach a chapel (SP 214). This is another marker on the GR.510 we take the direction Crêtes de Bauroux to the Ruines of the old village.
Follow the path through the village and through the cutting in the ridge- at SP 193 we leave the 510 and take a local path around the back of the Bauroux. This is a north facing slope and can be nice and cool under the trees in summer – in winter cold, we did this walk for the last time in May and there where patches of snow still. We found the path has changed since out map was drawn and it takes a wider route along the back of the crête and on the descent. The summit is free of trees and is marked with a cross and every time we have been her is has never been free of people. The advantage of this traffic is that the walk is well marked and used so very easy to follow. At SP 182 you meet the road look left here as the path takes a dog leg and continues at SP181 up the road. This then drops you onto the valley floor and on your way to Caille. Walk through the centre of Caille taking a right out of it and follow the main road for approximately .75 of a km then you will see a SP 197 on the other side of the road which takes you directly back to Seranon behind the village. Continue on this path and you come up behind the cemetery where the car is parked.
