Hiking Trails

The Lamonzie St Martin has a surface area of 2069 hectares with more than 40 km of roads. Its north part is bordered by the Dordogne river. A hiking trail that is seven km long has been built along the bank. It starts at the SNCF (railroad) bridge at La Bourgatie and goes as far as Saint-Martin.

     

Along the route you have a view of Saint-Sylvain church, the fish pond, Saint-Martin chapel, and Saint-Martin castle in the middle of its estate.

You will marvel at the natural scenery — its luminosity changes with each hour of the day. Pebbled beaches are accessible in summer. A pond for fish to spawn has been rebuilt near Saint-Sylvain church.

You can also travel through the commune’s most southern part via rural paths. They are not yet marked and are not interlinked. You will appreciate the calm countryside and its diverse vegetation: vineyards, orchards, groves...
Put on your shoes and have a good walk in our commune!!
