Historically

On June 14, 2016, the mayor of the historic city of Lécaude decided to ban access to Route No. 28, known as du Haut du Mont Pisté, by city ordinance for security reasons. In 2021, the town of Mézidon Vallée d’Auge launched a study to assess the character of the terrain of this route. The municipality therefore requested the services of the Office of Geological and Mining Research (BRGM).

BRGM, under the supervision of the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, the Ministry for Ecological and Solidarity Transformation, as well as the Ministry of Economy and Finance, is a benchmark public institution for the management of resources and risks in soil and subsoil. The summary of the conducted study pointed to a low probability of observing landslides on road No. 28. With these facts in mind, the municipality decided to cancel the decree prohibiting entry to this road on October 8, 2021.

Completed work

The tourist association Les Chemins de Lécaude mobilized in the spring of 2022 and undertook to clean up route No. 28 by carrying out cleaning, removing dead trees and other obstacles preventing its passage.

During the summer of 2022, municipal services carried out earthworks on the trail to fill in holes dug by badgers (meles meles). Since then, the path has been accessible to all and connects the top of the plateau with the Church of the Assumption of Our Lady de Lécaude. On the other hand, for hikers and other walkers to enjoy the journey, a picnic table is set up at the end of the Haut du Mont Pisté path.
