There are many hikes to reach the Caroux, the most famous of which is the 13km (8miles) long " PR des Gorges de Colombières ", with probably one of the biggest difference in altitude existing in "PR" in the Hérault department (+818m). To get there, follow the RD908, a free car park is indicated in Colombières. 

Prepare yourself for about 5 hours of walking, follow the yellow markings which allow you to go up the Gorges under the shade of the chestnut trees (rather rough start, 400m of positive difference in altitude).
Discover the rocks which shelter troglodyte houses before taking advantage of the pools, at La Fage.
The descent is on an ancient Roman road, which winds through chestnut groves, between heather and broom. Passageways with large flagstones are regularly placed for your safety.
