IGN map reference (s): IGN 2447 OT


Step 1

Via the rue de Ravichol, to the south of the town, a path goes down to the departmental 613. Cross and continue on the small road below, to the right.

Step 2

At the level of farm buildings on your right, turn left onto the path. We soon plunge left into the forest with its procession of white, green and box oaks. On the edge of the woods, on a hill, is one of the rare capitals of the canton of Mouthoumet. A short hook brings us back to the motorable path. The plot is characterized by long and narrow strips of land: the Bruges.

Step 3

At the track, turn left for the return to Mouthoumet. Via the rue des Ecoles and rue du Moulin à Vent, you reach the road going towards Salza.

Step 4

About 750 meters further on, take the path to the right, parallel to the road. We soon join the D82, to leave it at the entrance of a bend to the left.

Step 5

Go on the path due north. A few steps further, the path crosses the pastoral estate dotted with ruins, to the northeast of the town. IGN 687 terminal, round trip, a magnificent view is offered on the surrounding summits: Milobres de Bouisse and Massac, Mont Tauch, Nitable Roc and the bluish Pech of Bugarach, the giant of Corbières (1231m). At the center of this massif, the village of Mouthoumet is located in the heart of a large landscaped plateau.

Step 6

The path, semi-shaded by oaks and blooming with cistus in spring, soon takes the Bagaza path to the left. A loop on the left allows you to reach an old fortified domain then descends on the way to Bazaga. Go back a bit.

Step 7

Take the path on the left downhill along a stream. At the intersection, go right, on the GR36. We then follow the Caulière stream. The tarred path is bordered by clavade walls and dry stone enclosures. The agricultural area with its large pear tree joins the old Laroque de Fa path (the current D613) and the Ste-Anne chapel. In the village, the rue de la Gare, with its lined up houses, ends with the interconnecting doors of the Fort and the church.

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!


BEZIAT, Jean-Louis The 21 July 2021
I did this walk on August 25, 2015. The weather was fine which allowed me to appreciate all the points of view. However, I will issue a small caveat. Indeed, the markup should be reviewed, especially at intersections (no precise markup - markup erased - maintenance of the old markup causing directional errors). After point 7 it would be interesting to put, in the second intersection, a sign to offer a choice to the markers, either make the loop, or descend directly to join the GR 36. The fact remains that the area is magnificent .
