Col St Martin

- Itinerary -

Departing from Le Roux, you will reach the St Martin valley, passing through the hamlet of Montette (1940 m) where you can admire the pretty chapel recently renovated by the association for safeguarding the heritage "Queyras Passion". You are in the pastures where you may have the opportunity to meet the shepherd and his flock of sheep that graze the area from June to October.

Take the path towards the Col de la Mayt then leave it to follow on the right the one that descends towards the torrent in the bottom of the valley.

Cross the torrent and in the wood of Mamezel at an altitude of 2000 m, join the path on your left which will lead you to the very pretty alpine hamlet of Pré Roubaud (1950 m) which dominates the Roux d'Abriès and the valley of torrent Bouchet.
