PR665 Du haut du suc de Mercœur

This route takes up the Emblavez Landscapes interpretation circuit “Les Jardins de Mercœur” which guides the hiker to the summit of the Suc. From its 797 m, it dominates the entire Emblavez plain and offers beautiful perspectives of the volcanoes.
From the bread oven in the hamlet of Mercœur, take the small road which divides immediately. Follow the right lane which, after the houses, becomes a grassy path. This path under the trees goes around the Suc de Mercoeur. At the fork, go left and very quickly arrive at a fork.
Go up left on the narrow path. Pass near some ruins, then reach a house. Then turn left onto the path which climbs between the trees. Under the rocks, go to the right.
Turn left to take the stairs which provide access to the summit of the Suc de Mercoeur (panorama). Go to the right to join the path which plunges between trees and rocks (be careful!). Follow the path which soon widens and joins a small road. Use the road to go down.
Cut the bend in the road via a grassy path and return to the starting point.
