Walk inside the Parc des Volcans including three volcanoes, the Puy de Lassolas (1187 m), the Puy de la Vache (1167 m), and the Puy de Vichatel (the track goes up to 1037 m; the summit is at 1094). Especially the climb of the Puy de Lassolas is quite steep. The route mainly goes through forest with the exception of the summits of Puy de Lassolas and Puy de la Vache, which are bald, and where you have great views of the Chaîne des Puys and the surrounding countryside.
A slightly different version of this walk inspired this track and is described in the german book "Auvergne mit Massif Central und Vallée du Lot. Die schönsten Tal- und Höherwanderungen" by Bettina Forst (walk 9).

    Mooie route Tjaart. Mijn zus heeft een Chambre d'hôtes daar in de buurt (Saint Nectaire), dus ik ga deze route zeker een keer doen!
