Step 1

Pass in front of the cellar and turn left on the small road which goes up, bordered by cypress trees. After the houses, continue straight on along the path through the pine forest (spartan broom bushes). Walk along the reservoir to the left and climb the path to the crossroads.

Step 2

Take the level path to the left and continue in the shade of the pines. Climb the embankment that leads to the castle using the equipped steps. Pass within the walls of the old medieval village (the view over the surrounding plain lets imagine the protective function of this building).

Step 3

Go back down the steps and take the path under the pines on a level curve. Keep going straight. The path runs along the pech and the enclosure at mid-slope, then turns your back on the castle and descends between the vines. Take the D 423 to the right then, in the bend, the road opposite. She brings back to the cooperative cellar.

Step 4

Turn left (south). Take the D 423 on the left and, after the town hall, go up the Allée des Acacias. Go down the rue de la Serre and the rampe des Corbières. Cross the D 123.

Step 5

Continue by Chemin du Moulin-de-Tacou. After the raft, walk along the stone wall. When the road stops, three tracks present themselves in rough terrain.

Step 6

Take the middle one, which climbs towards the pines. Cross the scrubland (where the cistus of Montpellier abound).

Step 7

About 350 meters further, take the path to the right. It descends towards the bed of a dry stream, becomes a path. Get back on the track and go to the right.

Step 8

Continue by the path which rises in the pines, the scrubland and the holm oaks. It rises to the highest point (118 m) of the Côte de la Jasse (view of the castle and the village), then descends and runs along the stream. go around the vineyard on the right and join the track on the way out. At the junction of the 3 tracks, take the outward path.

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!
