From La Garde-Guerin, at the stone cross, follow the GR72 and the GR700 Regordane Way (North) until a small road to Albespeyres. Cross the road and follow the path next to the golf. Cross the road D906 and take the track on the right which leads to a larger path. 300m. further, take a left. At the fork, take the path on the left. Walk by the ancient village in ruins and continue on until Pourcharesses. At the exit of the village, go down a road until the first hairpin turn. At that point, take the track which continues straight on. Reach the path around the lake and follow it on the left. When reaching the road, turn right. A little further after the small bridge over the stream of Morangies, take on the right a track which follows the ancient road near the lake's banks. Go back up to the medieval village of La Garde-Guerin via the Regordane Way. A little track climbs up to la Chapelle Saint-Loup right before the dam; nice view over the valley of the Altier. It will take 45 minutes to go there and come back. It is possible to go to the lake with a bike, it is a downhill slope all the way to La Garde-Guerin, and come back with the train. It is also possible to go to Villefort with the train, however, the lake is 3km away from the station.
