The D 907 leaves the town on its southern side towards the Pont de Parre on the Tarnon. You cross the river and then a mule track leads up to La Rouvière (775 m), a hamlet named after the oaks, of which there are many monumental specimens in the area. You rise to Tardonnenche (800 m), which still preserves its communal oven and the school, besides many houses in ruins next to others which have been restored by the neo-residents. You then go further up to an asphalted road to reach the Col du Rey (987 m). The walk goes on towards the east, picking up a path after a short while which leads to Barre-des-Cévennes by crossing a rural environment with fenced off meadows.
