Step 1

From the starting panel located on the RD123 3 minutes from Fontjoncouse in the direction of Ripaud, take the path which goes straight ahead, it then becomes a path which goes up on the left through the typical Mediterranean vegetation: Pines, Junipers, Boxwood, Arbutus , Rosemary... After old sheepfolds in ruins, follow the path towards Mont St Victor, the last meters on the white limestone rock are steep. Once at the top, 2 orientation tables offer you a complete reading of this 360° landscape over the Mediterranean, the Monts des Corbières, the surrounding villages and the Pyrenees. The chapel dedicated to St Victor is well preserved and still houses the traces of some religious praises. L'Ermitage is now a television station.

Step 2

To go back down, take the stone staircase in front of the chapel to follow a path in cornices then in scrubland which brings you back to the starting panel. to see in the village: church, wash house and gardens and further on the D123 the gorges of Ripaud.

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!
