Step 1

From the starting panel on the square of the old town hall, leave the car park on your right and continue on the "rue de la Couverte". Then head towards the church, climb the beautiful staircase that leads to its forecourt and turn right into “rue du N” to catch up with rue du Cabaïrido below. Cross the small bridge and take the paved road on the right which follows the stream. At 150 m take the grassy path on the left which leads further on to a small road, it runs along the vines, we follow it for 600 m

Step 2

We then catch up with a path that climbs between boxwood and stone walls to the passage dug in the limestone rocks “La Porte du Château”. We evolve in some scree then in a vegetation of scrubland to arrive on the plateau and discover a vast wind farm.

Step 3

We evolve in some scree then in a vegetation of scrubland to arrive on the plateau and discover a vast wind farm.

Rejoin the track and follow it for about 2,5 km passing at the foot of these giant modern windmills, the 360° view allows you to catch a glimpse of the Mediterranean, the Monts des Corbières and the Pyrenees.

Step 5

We then leave the track on the right for a path that runs along the plateau and further on begin the descent on a pretty stone path. Beautiful views over the village and soon back to the vines and the tarmac road.

We pass in front of an old disused plaster factory at the gates of the village and return to the starting point.

Be careful, the fire risk is often high, especially in summer, and can lead to flower bed closures. Find out before you go consulting the fire risk map for outdoor activities.
Fires strictly prohibited. Do not smoke and never throw cigarette butts in nature. Fires are numerous and catastrophic in our region. In the event of a fire or accident: give alert 18 or 112 from a cell phone.
Protect yourself from the sun and take enough water with you.
Avoid picking flowers and plants. Take all your trash. Close fences and keep dogs on a leash in pasture areas, villages and protected areas.

Mountain bike routes: the routes are often shared with hikers or other users (cars, tractors, etc.). Be careful and always anticipate that a pedestrian may be present around a bend to have time to brake if necessary. Pedestrians have priority in principle, slow down at crossings or stop if the configuration of the terrain requires you to do so.
Thank you and happy hiking!
