The Walking Club

BritsNîmes Walking Club



Wednesday 11 September 2019
Meet at 9.45am -  the walk will commence at 10.00 am 

 Around Milhaud
 I’ll be leading our walk, where we’ll discover 17 new capitelles, which are very  different and much older than those we’ve already seen on earlier walks. Off the beaten track, the charm of this walk lies in exploring and learning about  each of them - like a treasure hunt, with the treasure here being ancient stones and the garrigues….

Difficulty: +/- 67 m
Suitable for all abilities.
This is an easy walk on large paths, but please wear suitable footwear.
The hunting season has just started again, so wear bright outfits and  I’ll bring the orange caps.  Don’t forget sunscreen, and also bring  plenty of water as none is available along the route.

Milhaud  is located 12km east of Nîmes toward Montpellier
From Nîmes : 
From the Km Delta , boulevard Salvador Allende,
take the route de Montpellier N113 toward Montpellier,
