Departing from your vacation spot, from the hamlet of La Roque, a short hiking route (3 km) will take you along the Goul to the heights of Saint-Clément. A great introduction to appreciate the preserved nature of the Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Natural Park.
The Carladès is a viewpoint over the Cantal volcano. At the top of the Col de Curebourse, a magnificent panorama is offered to you from the rock, an orientation table will allow you to identify the Cantal mountains. This short 40-minute walk (return) leaves from Vic sur Cère. The site is called “The Rock of the Hanged”, because in the Middle Ages the rock was the place of execution of the condemned.
To admire beautiful panoramic views of the Monts du Cantal, take the loop route departing from the village of Badailhac (12 km from Saint-Clément). This hike, 17 km long but with a slight difference in altitude, is located on a large plateau, at an altitude of 1,000 meters, between the Cère valley and the Goul valley.

The Pas de Cère is discovered at the bend of a shaded path which runs along the Cère, continues at the bottom of impressive gorges and joins the Roucolle Waterfall. This unique place is part of the Sensitive Natural Spaces of Cantal. This hike allows you to explore an exceptional natural environment. If you come with your family, download the Les Trésors du Volcan Cantalien application which offers a fun and educational treasure hunt throughout the route.
Puy Griou, Puy Mary, Plomb du Cantal… the Monts du Cantal are magnificent places for hiking.
