Your itinerary


Step 1

From the parking lot of the Claira multipurpose hall, walk along this infrastructure, you are on the "rue des sports / av du stadium". Then turn right on “Rue Cami Del Rec” and walk on the cycle path. You arrive at the large “rue St Pierre”.

Step 2

Cross it and turn right to catch up with “Germinal Nieto” street, still on the cycle path. Continue the cycle path on the "Chemin de Mataburros", it then continues to the greenway that you take on the right.

Step 3

The Agly is on your left and the orchards on your right, stay on this road for a long time, you will surely see many egrets, these birds of about sixty centimeters, quite slender, with a fine black beak, are very present in edge of Agly where they feed. Continue to an old station (its ocher walls are tagged),

Step 4

at its level, leave the greenway on the left to descend towards the chapel of St Pierre. This former hermitage is now a place of vacation and leisure that the population can rent, its church dedicated to St Pierre is built of river pebbles. Pass this building and take the path opposite, follow it to "Chemin Petit"

Step 5

You take it to the right and that brings you back to Claira. It leads to "Avenue des Platanes" which you take to the right until the 1st street on the left "Avenue du 8 Mai 1945". You arrive at a crossroads, continue the avenue du 8 Mai 1945 on the right, you walk along the stadium and see the car park, your starting point. After the stadium, take the passage between the children's play area and a few houses to reach it.

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!
