This hike in Plougrescant is one of the essential of Brittany. Granite, rocks, scums, small Breton houses, chapel, menhir, sea cabbages … everything is there.
Park near the post office, then go near the small chapel Saint-Gonéry. You will be amazed by this chapel of Roman origin, enlarged in the 15th century, bearing a curiously bent lead arrow.
Turn left onto Quelen Hent an Ivern and continue straight to Lizildry Stream leaving Hell on the left.
Then follow the GR 34, the coastal path. Admire the estuary of Jaudy dotted with islets. At low tide, we discover the oyster area and its oyster beds. The coast reveals a succession of cut rocks particularly impressive. After the small port of Porz-Hir, the point of the Castle and Porz-Bugalé mark the beginning of a fabulous rocky landscape. Their cut out forms draw a magnificent wild painting and one continues to marvel in front of the islands archipel ago gray and pink granite.
You will easily recognize the little house of Castel Meur, wedged between two huge rocks. Hard to find more picturesque. It’s time to take a picture! Especially since you will not find it in postcard. Near the house is the Gouffre, an impressive fault between two cliff faces, where the sea comes crashing down furiously.
Until Pors-Scarff, the coastal path advances in slalomant between the pink granite tors (ruiniform blocks which resisted the erosion). The coastline is particularly wild, mixing moors, rocky deliriums, cabbage bushes. A rock even bears the name of Napoleon because of its form of cocked hat.
After Pors Scarff, start the return passing near the menhir of Kergonet. Follow the path of Hent Kergonet, then go through the locality Le Roudour, Kernevez and join the town center.
This hike of 13.5 km is done in four hours. Bring your picnic.
If this distance is scary, park on the parking near the coastal path and just walk on the side of the Pointe du Château and the Gouffre de Castel Meur.
The starting point of the ride, the town of Plougrescant is 13 km from the Gîte de Pont-Losquet. A quarter of an hour drive and you are there. The bravest will put three quarters of hours on a bike.
