This trail will let you explore several rivers and waterfalls, in particular the Orgon waterfalls in the depths of the wild and  rugged Coudoulous valley. NB: After the waterfalls, there is a fairly steep  downhill section.


Signposts will guide you all along this route. In the description below, the signposted place names and/or directions are given in bold italics between quotation marks:

Starting at "Cascades d’Orgon", walk towards "Cap de Côte", then to "La Draille". From here, a detour is possible to the André Chamson monument (there-and-back). From “La Draille”, return to "Cascades d’Orgon" via "Valat de l’Abreuvoir" and "Les Abéouradous".

This walk is taken from the guidebook Massif de l’Aigoual, published by the Communauté de communes Aigoual Causses Cévennes Terres Solidaires as part of the collection Espaces Naturels Gardois and the label Gard Pleine Nature.
