Seen from the natural terrace at les "Marches du Géant" as called by geocachers, between Le Moulin de Rouet and Gabriac. The Pic Saint Loup can be seen on the horizon, opposed to the church of St Etienne de Gabriac and the Cevennes far to the north.

The huge limestone steps on top of which we stand can be seen from The Pic Saint Loup, from the Fambétou pass between the Pict St Loup the facing "Montagne de l'Hortus". They can also be seen from parts of the trails that runs on the edge of l'Hortus. All these are beautiful regional hiking trails.
