01

La Thiebaut Loop

4.7 km, 50 minutes                                             Ascent 67m, Descent 62m

Starting and finishing at Blue Haze. Country lanes, and a short section of footpath, with a potential detour to see Les Monts Grantez Dolmen (4000BC). Views across L’Etacq and the north end of St Ouen’s Bay. From La Thiebaut headland there is also a good view of Blue Haze!

(La Thiebaut headland is the rocky outcrop across the valley, lookig south from the house, towards Corbiere).

02

L'Etacquerel Loop

6.5 km,  1h 10m                          Ascent 87m, Descent 88m

Starting from Blue Haze, a gentle amble through the lanes, down to the beach at the north end of St Ouen. A stroll along the beach with plenty of opportunity to meander down sandy gullies, at low tide. Leave the beach beside Faulkner Fisheries, where you can stop for refreshments and enjoy the wild coastal views, listening to Oyster Catchers. Follow the road around the base of Grand Etacquerel, then leave the road to pick up the steep footpath, meandering above Le Pulec, emerging on the edge of Les Landes common, with breathtaking views across St Ouen's Bay. Return to Blue Haze along country lanes.

Donkey Track Loop

8km, 1h 35m                            Ascent 131m, Descent 130m

Starting from Blue Haze, allow at least 2 hours for this walk. Full of variety and interest, it takes you along country lanes, along footpaths, through woodland and across heath and grasslands before reaching the beach. Wonderful views across St Ouen's Bay, a variety of eco-systems and plenty of scope for detours or picnic stops. "The Donkey Track" is, I believe, the track that descends down to Chemin du Moulin from the escarpment. No doubt it was a trail used by donkeys or mules, but I don't know the history. (The Battle of Flowers Museum is no longer in existence). After a stroll along the beach, you rejoin the lanes to loop back to Blue Haze. If the fields are not in use, you can cut across them back to the house, as per the route illustrated; alternatively, follow the lane (Rue de la Robeline) to bring you home.
