Step 1

When leaving the car park, take the road to the left then fork to the left on a path which passes in front of a covered well. Gently rise between the vines.

Step 2

Turn left again. We soon enter the pine plantation. Then the pines give way to the garrigue and the path passes at the foot of large blocks of limestone. Always climb to the top of Pech. The track zigzags a bit. View over the Lézignan plain and its villages.

Step 3

Before the track descends slightly, by a round trip to the left, climb straight up to the summit of Mourel. In passing, notice this rock called Roche Trouée and the curious ensemble that it makes up with its neighbors. At the top, an interesting 360 ° point of view. Join the track, and continue to the left. Slowly descend to the plain.

Step 4

At the intersection with the partly tarred path, go opposite under the power line.

Step 5

Take a track on the right. Soon pass in front of a ruin and join the tar. Go straight ahead then cross the small road taken on the way out.

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!

The rocky hole and the panorama by making the detour to the highest point is really worth it. Too bad the botanical path is not well maintained, many signs are missing but that does not spoil the walk.
