Description

From the hamlet of Echarvines go to the car park located a hundred meters before the golf course then take the well marked green path that navigates through woods to the Belvédères, a beautiful viewpoint. From the Belvédères, retrace your steps slightly until you reach the crossing and descend a path on the lake side.

Follow this wide and well marked (by following the green markings) trail downwards.

In the first third of the descent, it is possible to make a small detour to reach a second viewpoint.

Then follow the path to the starting point. Other tours are possible on the Chère rock.

It is possible to extend the Belvédères circuit by joining ,slightly below the Belvédères, the loop marked in red (which is the only itinerary authorized for mountain bikes and horses).

This loop allows you to pass on both sides of the rock of Chère with a very different atmosphere, beautiful passages through thick forests, and offers several possibilities to go to the edge of cliffs above the lake by small unofficial slopes. <br/><br/>_This Adventure has been shared under the [Creative Commons Share Alike](https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.5/) licence._
