Description
Waypoints (0)

Les gorges du Gardon sont un canyon creusé par la rivière Gardon, affluent du Rhône, qui prend sa source dans les hautes Cévennes. Elles sont situées à une vingtaine de kilomètres au nord de Nîmes. Ce parcours est au départ du village de Collias. La première partie de la balade se fait dans les gorges, en remontant la rivière. Le sentier alterne rochers et sous-bois ; parfois le sable remplace la roche. La vallée du Gardon recèle dans ses falaises de nombreuses grottes qui ont servi d'abris durant la préhistoire. La deuxième partie du parcours se fait sur le plateau 150 mètres plus haut. La pente est rude, mais le sentier vaut le détour avec la vue plongeante sur les gorges et les ruines du moulin de la Baume. Le retour vers Collias suit le GR sur le plateau dans la garrigue entre les gorges du Gardon et la vallée de l'Alzon. A voir/visiter dans le coin : - Le Site du Pont du Gard; - L'Abbatiale de Saint Gilles; - Lussan, village de caractère.

Sympathique, légère complication à mi chemin mais dans l’ensemble assez simple.

Randonnée agréable avec des paysages variés. Mais à signaler un passage escarpé à escalader, pas recommandé pour tous. De beaux panoramas sur les gorges !!

Très belle balade... Une variété de paysages et un gardon magnifique ! Prévoyez le maillot de bain pour une petite baignade.. De beaux endroits tranquilles vous attendent..

Une partie où l’eau de la rivière nous a coupé la route il a fallut reprendre un peu plus haut pour contourner. Sinon très belle rando avec de beaux points vue

Superbe rando avec des variations de paysages très sympathiques et de beaux coins de baignade. Nous avons fait la balade en sens inverse (on a suivi le balisage jaune tout le long de la crête jusqu’aux gorges) afin de garder la fraîcheur de la rivière pour l’après-midi.

Superbe paysage, rando très agréable et globalement facile, juste un petit passage qui grimpe puis la vue nous récompense comme il faut! Je recommande!

Missed the trail coming back on loop. Have to follow yellow route or you become stuck on a quite steep ridge. Great scenery, great walk just be vigilant on back loop.

Good varied walk. Two of us made a mistake at the far end and went up the blue trail instead of yellow. It was challenging getting back up to the right path where another person in our group was. The correct path is apparently much easier and has handholds and steps to help in the hard spots.
