The short variant passes by Le Rozier/ Peyreleau, and then trough the Gorges of the Jonte. If you’re lucky, you can admire the vultures, circling high above your head. In Le Truel it is worth the trouble to stop at the Belvedère des Vautours. This is a sort of museum/information centre about the re-introduction of the vultures in the Gorges.
