Departure from the Place de l'école. When the sheep grazed on the plateau, the fox was on the prowl. The shepherd, distracted by his contemplation of the Alaric and the Black Mountain, sometimes allowed himself to be surprised by the fleeing movements of his flock. Was Maître Goupil hiding in the hollows of the rock bearing his name today?

Step 1

Take rue Jean-Moulin which borders the municipal foyer on the left, then avenue des Corbières (D 165) on the right. In the bend, cross the Lacoste subdivision straight ahead.

Step 2

Climb opposite by the path in the pine forest. It turns left and climbs up the flank before reaching the Pierre-Drete plateau through very fragrant vegetation.

Step 3

Take the forest track on the right. It follows the ridge which rises to 200 m (opposite, view of the Alaric).

Step 4

Fork to the left. The path winds over the plateau (formerly occupied by huge herds of sheep) and, facing south, arrives at the coast of Fontcouverte. Go along the path on the right on the edge of the plateau and reach the Rocher du Renard (this limestone cornice dominates the entire Aude plain as far as Alaric which blocks the horizon).

Step 5

Continue along the rocky ridge towards the west by the forest track (breathtaking view of the Minervois plain and the Montagne Noire).

Step 6

Leave the track for the path on the left. Cross the Terme ravine, then emerge into the Baden ravine and take the path to the left.

Step 7

Take the track on the right. It leads to the village through the vineyards. Take the Boulevard des Pins to the right, return to the starting point.
