  • Monts de l'Espinouse [dead link] — a beautiful range of relatively low mountains, wild and craggy with few paths, around the D14 from Olargues to Fraisse-sur-Agout. A small side road (to the left from the above direction) leads to the tiny pretty village of Douch, from which there is a good path to the summit of Mont Caroux, where you suddenly come across a great southern vista.


  • Gorges d'Héric — lots of climbing and hiking opportunities. A road train connects the gorges with the town of Mons.
