A hiking paradise

Hiking in the Tarn Gorges reveals a myriad of sublime sites and absolutely majestic landscapes. IGN maps are on sale at the campsite reception. Gilles, our host, will be delighted to help you read them. He will be able to point you in the direction of nearby hiking trails, depending on their duration and level of difficulty.
You can also consult the medium mountain guides, who will guide you throughout your hike.

On a pedestrian itinerary
Follow the Tarn river on a superb walking tour ! The GR*736 “Gorges and valley of the Tarn” takes you from Villefort (48) to Albi (81) in fifteen stages. Cross the Cévennes, the Grands Causses and the valleys of the Ségala, follow the Tarn gorges on the left bank, discover the Raspes du Tarn, those other lesser-known gorges… A beautiful route, detailed in the GR*736 topoguide published by the French Hiking Federation.
In mountain bike, gravel or trail mode
The Causse Noir, whose cliffs border our campsite, is a dream spot for mountain biking and gravel biking. The Rando Grands Causses mobile app suggests two great mountain bike trails on the plateau and a little gem of a gravel bike ride – long distance – through the Tarn gorges See also the Millau sports nature website.
Plus, there are a number of trail routes between the Jonte and Tarn Gorges for the more experienced sportsmen and women. Check them out online at the Espace trail Millau Grands Causses and, again, the Rando Grands Causses mobile app.
L’Ermitage Saint-Michel et les corniches du Causse Noir
Au départ de Peyreleau, vous remonterez la rivière Jonte par un chemin la surplombant d’environ 30 mètres. Après 3km, l’ascension vers le Causse Noir vous mènera jusqu’aux ruines de l’ermitage Saint-Michel. Vous longerez ensuite les corniches du Causse Noir, qui offrent une vue époustouflante sur les gorges de la Jonte. En face de vous : les Vases de Sèvres et de Chine, étonnants ruiniformes, et les grimpeurs qui les escaladent ! Une dernière montée vous fera découvrir la formation rocheuse du « Champignon préhistorique », puis vous entamerez la descente vers Peyreleau.
Canoeing and kayaking: paddle on, we’ll take care of the rest
Canoeing and kayaking at Camping Les Prades is never a problem! Boats, paddles, helmets and life jackets: the full range of equipment is available for rental on site.
Our shuttle bus will take you to the starting point of your trip on the river Tarn, to Les Vignes for “La Sublime”, or to La Sablière for “La Minouchette”.
At the end of your nautical escapade, dock at the landing stage: our white pebble beach. We’ll take ourselves your equipment up to the rental base.
Summing up? No car, no material complications. Just paddling, fun, wonderful scenery and plenty of bathing breaks.
The Sublime > 16 Km
This 16km route starts at the village of Les Vignes, in the Gorges du Tarn, downstream from the Pas de Soucy. It’s a breathtaking sight in the heart of limestone canyons where villages and hamlets, some of them troglodyte, nestle. Don’t miss out on a stopover on the beautiful beaches of the Tarn and don’t forget your picnic.
The Minouchette > 8 Km
An 8km hike… and a discovery trail ideal for young freshwater paddlers (from age 7). The canoe trip starts at the village of La Sablière, one of the most emblematic hamlets in the Tarn Gorges, isolated on the left bank. Pure pleasure.
Information: from age 7 – must be able to swim
