This circuit allows you to take the rural paths cleared and maintained by the association of volunteers "Chemins et Patrimoines Andrésiens". These roads had been abandoned due to the consolidation and the disappearance of small farms. The circuit follows sunken paths, located below the level of the surrounding land, and the finch path, also known as the lovers path.
The topo-guide is available at the Tourist Office.
