3 points of interest

  • Col de Côte Chèvre

    From the Cote de Chèvre pass, admire the panorama on the southern part of the Hauts-Plateaux du Vercors nature reserve, but also on the Serre de Beaupuy.
  • Vallon of Combau

    Dominated by the Montagnette (1972 m), the sumptuous valley of Combau is a valley in trough (its bottom is flat and its slopes stiff). In the spring, the flora covers the valley: you can admire daffodils, orchids including the hoof of Venus, pines with hooks and a multitude of other species characteristic of mountain flora. In the summer, the valley is a place of grazing for the sheep, which maintain this open space.Attention: Flower picking is regulated.
  • Rock of Combau

    From its height of 1593 m, the Rock of Combau majestically dominates the valley that bears its name. This rocky limestone spur is the fruit of thousands of years of erosion.


Departure of Nonières (parking in the hamlet), direction Col de Côte Chèvre 1. Follow the yellow-green markings and take the path just behind the hotel "Le Mont Barral". Farther on, cut the road to Col de Menée and continue between forests and clearings. The trail follows a wood of spruces and pines with hooks to emerge at the Col de Côte Chèvre. After enjoying the spectacular view, this hike continues through the crossing of a scree before reaching the road at the crossroads Granges de Combau 2. For a moment, take the road that goes around the rock of Combau, to the directional post that tells you Liodève 3. From there, leave the tar for a nice path in the underbrush that runs along the creek of Combau (always yellow and green markings). After crossing the road again twice, reach Liodève. The return to Nonières is effected by the GR 93.
