Getting here and regulations

Acess to the southern slopes of the Saint-Cyr ranges, which are part of Carpiagne military camp, is forbidden. The zone covers the Nerte et La Louve valleys to the west, the Eaux-Vives springs to the north, Carpiagne camp to the west, and La Gineste to the south. To the south, a zone classified as dangerous with a shooting range, is also closed to the public (see the map). As a result, it is forbidden to climb Monts Lantin, Saint-Cyr, and Carpiagne.
