Beautiful landscape after a climb a little steep but short.

Easy hike to the top of the tallest volcano overlooking Clermont-Ferrand in the Auvergne region of central France. Views from the top are awesome with this being a gorgeous area of France. (I was there on business and was very surprised at how beautiful this area is.) Alternatively, there is a train that takes tourists to the top to enjoy the views without the hike, but that takes a bunch of the fun out of it.
