This trail takes you along the paths of Saint-Philibert to discover the megaliths of the commune, as well as the coastline, and enjoy a lovely panorama.

Departure point :
From the town hall, turn left into rue des Ormes, then immediately left into rue Abbé Martin. From Rue des Presses, turn right, then immediately right onto the footpath. At the end of the path, turn left onto the road leading to the housing estate, then take the path leading to the cycle track. Turn right. Pass the Mané Canaplaye Dolmen, a tomb dating from the Neolithic period (between 7,000 and 4,500 years BC). Only the burial chamber and a few pillars of its corridor are visible today. Continue along the cycle path to the hamlet of Kerroch.

Step 1:
At the crossroads, take the left-hand path. Cross the main road (beware of heavy traffic) and continue along the path to the hamlet of Kérambel. At the end of the path, turn left onto the road. Continue straight ahead, passing the Dolmen du Petit Kerambel (Mané Han), also a Neolithic tomb. It consists of a corridor leading to a burial chamber and was once part of a partially preserved tumulus. The tomb was restored in 1927 by Zacharie Le Rouzic. Follow the path to Kervehennec. At the road, turn right to join the route de Quehan.

Stage 2:
Take the road on the left, following the roadside. Pass the oyster-farming yards on the Crac'h river to reach the Quéhan roundabout. Cross the roundabout to join Rue de l'Océan. Turn right into impasse Yvon Daniel. Turn left to join the coastal path.

Step 3:
Follow the coastal path, going around a property. At ruelle des Vieilles Presses, go straight ahead, cross rue de l'océan and enter rue des Presses. After 150 m, turn right onto the footpath. Keep to the right until you reach rue du Prado. Cross this road and continue along the footpath opposite to reach the tennis courts, then walk around them and the sports fields. At rue du Stade, turn left immediately onto a path that runs between the houses until you reach allée des Goélands. Cross it to continue along the path opposite.

Step 4:
Take the road to the left for a few metres, then fork right along the path around the housing estate. Join rue des Presses. Turn right, then immediately left into rue Abbé Joseph Martin, to reach place des Trois Otages via rue des Ormes.
