Hike in the snow to the peak Cassini France

The Mont Lozère culminates at 1699 meters at the summit of Finiels, located in the center of the chain. At its eastern end, Pic Cassini is the second highest point, at 1680 meters. The term “Pic” will probably smile, as the place is rounded!


After 1h30 of hiking in summer as in winter (snowshoes advised) you can achieve it. To do this, you will have to leave the “Mas de la Barque” car park, the non-motor-road which rises gently towards the north-west between the old alpine skiing facilities. Little by little, the road narrows and after the Eagle pass (1605m), it becomes a path to the summit, clearly indicated by a large triangular marker. At the exit of the trees, one sees the peak and its pyramidal dome in steel.

A map indicates a loop of 6.3km, and a distance from the bottom of 3km to reach the peak. The complete turn exceeds 9km when the course is traced on a map. The markings are well done but be careful the very approximate distances.

On a clear day, the panorama is immense over the rest of the central massif (the Sancy massif in the north-west, from Forez to the north, from Mézenc to the north-east, from Aigoual to the south-west) Blanc, Savoie, Ecrins), Mont Ventoux, the Rhone valley or the Mediterranean basin.

In the heart of the Mont-Lozère National Forest, the marked trails and routes allow you to discover truly protected landscapes, made magical by the snowpack.
