Blue MTB
Departure from the cooperative cellar. Small loop above Cascastel, Pech de Fa, Vente Farine (shared route with the footpath for a few meters), Jasse de Rivière. Be careful, this circuit is not very technical but the entire height difference is done in one go; the Corbières are not “a long quiet river”, despite the presence of the Berre river which we pass alongside for a while on the way there and on the way back. You can then indulge in the long descent. To see: Cascastel: castle and gypsum room, 12th century tower, stone bridge. Viewpoints: Durban and its castle at Pech de Fa.

Step 1

From the cellar, turn left on the D106, direction Villeneuve and turn left immediately. The road heads north. Climb between the vines, in the area called "La Crémade". A few meters after a hairpin bend, at the fork, turn left and climb up a track between the ravine of Cresse at a place called Callong and the Pech du Fa. This ravine flows further into the Berre which you can see further down the journey and arrival in Durban (viewpoint on the castle and the village of Durban). At a place called Vente Farine, a windy place par excellence, we leave to the north, on the right, the path passing in front of the renovated sheepfold to take the common route to the left for a few meters, mountain biking / walking. Leave this pedestrian portion and continue straight towards the stream of La Rivière and Jasse de Rivière. On your right, do not miss the ocher colors of Roumanissa and the vines planted on the hillsides. Go down towards the D106 along the stream. Turn left, towards Cascastel. On your right, the Moulineau (renovated mill). Then the bridge over the Berre. We follow the river as closely as possible. In the village, cross the bridge over the Berre and turn right onto the promenade des Jardins; leave the village and find the outward route. A loop to be covered at the end of winter, when the mimosas are in bloom, for the pleasure of the eyes and the nostrils. The water of the singing streams.

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!
