This loop offers unforgettable panoramas of the Corbières, the Serre d'Opoul and the village. The rocky terraces are a reminder of the importance of sheep herds. A detour by the source of Canelles will allow a refreshing stop.

Go up the left track for about 180 meters then, at the level of two pine trees (follow the markings carefully), take the path on the right. It climbs on the sides of the Sauveille (follow the markings carefully). After a small pass, the path descends gently then continues flat and in the rockery, just under the ridge, on the right side. It then winds, hesitating between ascents and descents.

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!

Very beautiful landscape, and quite easy despite the elevation. The landscapes are very pleasant.
