bishop_pam visited on 30th Aug 2018 - their rating: Cond: 4 Amb: 4 Access: 3 There is a path giving access to this menhir. From the Planas Dolmen take the road towards Le Landre. The path goes off to the left and is waymarked as the route to Blandas.

TheCaptain saw from a distance on 19th Sep 2005 From the Planas junction, take the small road towards Le Landre. After a couple of kilometres, just after passing over the brow of a hill, and you can see this menhir up on top of its little hillock, about 70 metres to the left of the road. It was all well fenced in when I visited, behind a little cropped field, so I couldn't get to the stone. It looks about 2.5 metres tall, and leans at quite an angle. Splendid views from here to the north, and the Cevennes.

En déséquilibre: des pierre ont été amoncelées pour le soutenir!
Accessible sans souci actuellement, par le chemin de randonnée balisé.
5 courants telluriques se croisent en dessous!
