Step 1

Take rue de la Passerelle then chemin des Oliviers on the right. Then you fork to the left on the Chemin des Amandiers which goes deep into the Baucets vineyards and becomes a very pleasant little path which climbs up into the hollow of a ravine for 200 m in the pine forest. Turn left to arrive on the plateau via the ledge which dominates the entire Aude plain (viewpoint materialized by a security barrier).

Step 2

Then take the track to the right. Go back down for about a hundred meters and fork to the left. The path overlooks the D165. Join it and take it to the right.

Step 3

About 50 meters later, go up a forest track to the left. The path starts opposite, in a scrubland of fragrant thyme, lavender and rosemary. The path climbs up to the old slate quarry, then descends to the pine forest of "Laousina" in which it winds. The forest path then joins the road to Montbrun. Go down to the left to reach the village. Its parish church dedicated to Notre Dame was built in 1855 on the site of the original place of worship. Located on the edge of the RN 113, the remarkable town hall-school building reflects the prosperity of the town at the end of the XNUMXth century.

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!

Pleasant quiet walk which combines greenery and minerals, and which offers beautiful views of different landscapes, the valley, the Corbières. The part under the pine forests is very nice. The route is very well marked. Nice ! Thank you ! ;-)

Very nice walk with beautiful views indeed. Having said that, we wouldn't call it easy; rather of medium difficulty level.
