Walk through the Verdouble national forest to climb Mont Tauch (the Tauch is a bare and desert mountain with cracked relief surrounded by the rivers of Verdouble and Torgan; it offers a grandiose 360 ​​° panorama: Canigou, Ariège, Corbières, coast). Continue to the proximity of the Geographers' Tower or Enseigne (878 m; tower built in 1791 by a group of astronomers commissioned by the Academy of Sciences to accurately measure the Dunkirk meridian in Barcelona; at its foot: pellet in bronze from 1870, mark of the meridian arc). A little further on, an orientation table offers a beautiful panorama. Go down to Padern.


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!
