The huge lake of the Montargil Reservoir marks the landscape from the various viewpoints and high points around Montargil, looking like a never-ending watery mirror. The configuration of the route lets you start with a panoramic urban circuit which takes you past the city centre’s most important monuments, followed by a nature-trail section; this latter takes you through varied forest landscapes with sublime scenery of wide open spaces, always with the lake as backdrop.
