Causses du Quercy PNR
That's it SAILLAC
Duration 01:45
Difficulty Easy-to-use
Distance 6.1km
Denivele 76m

Short shady walk that allows you to discover a specificity of the causses, a stream that loses itself in a cavity and reappears a few kilometers further.

Between impermeable marls and causse, the Cros stream disappears into a crack in the limestone massif called Perte du Cros. The water comes out 3,5 km further at the Saint-Géry cave. But the richness of the place comes mainly from the proven presence of men for 8500 years

Distance from previous stage:

With your back to the church, take the path on the left under the town hall square and follow it for 2 km (caselle on the right as you leave the village).

Distance from previous stage:

Arriving at a crossroads, facing a wall, go down to the right then immediately to the left to pass between two houses and arrive at the site of the Cros loss. Continue the small paved road which goes up to the hamlet of Cros (barn) and joins the D52.

Distance from previous stage:

Continue to the right and 50 m further, take the wide grassy path and walk along the buildings. You will come across a succession of closely spaced forks: first turn right and go around a field, then left and immediately right and finally, 100 m later, left. After 450 m turn left. Arrive at Saillagol (lake and church), turn left.

Distance from previous stage:

You arrive very quickly on the D33bis which you take on the right for about 500 m. Cross the hamlets of Fizel and Pierrou.

Distance from previous stage:

At a cross on the left, leave the road and take the path on the right that takes you to the windmill. Continue the wide path which leads after 500 m onto a wide stone path. Take it on the right and continue on this path towards Saillac which you quickly see. Just before reaching the road, turn right onto the grassy path which goes down to the wash house. Go under the shelter and go back up opposite to reach your starting point.
