Step 1

When leaving the car park of the Maison des villages en Corbières, turn right into rue du Moulin à Vent then rue de Montagut, on the right. Continue straight after the last houses. We soon see a few rocky bars opposite.

Step 2

Then take the path on the right, slightly uphill. This course is bordered by boxwood and crosses the pine forest. Beautiful views, to the left, over the plain. On the right, the rocky bars dominate the landscape. The path runs along the plain in a southerly direction.

Step 3

Soon, the path turns to the right and rises at the foot of a first block of rocks. (!) Pay attention to the markup. Then he climbs zigzagging towards a second rocky bar that he skirts flush. Continue along this bar.

Step 4

On the left, appears the release of the Caune, peaceful natural shelter to visit absolutely. The path climbs again in the stones and passes over a rocky ridge. Beautiful panorama on the right, on the plain and on the left, on the scrubland. We then begin our return to the pine forest, halfway up the Montagut. Gentle descent to the village. The path is bordered in places by low walls which hint at old terraces, the last testimonies of an endangered agrarian activity.

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!

I join with previous comments in confirming that this little hike is awesome. It's going up, yes, but we are over 60 years old, not great sportsmen, and it was nice. I would just add that if you are walking, like us, with your dogs, and you hear the herd of goats approaching (which seems to be part of the inventory there ????), and you can hear them, take your dogs on a leash. Thank you Thezan for this beautiful hike.

Really nice walk, 97% of which is a narrow footpath of earth and rocks with a fair bit of up hill through pine trees to the summit. 360 degree glorious panoramic view down across vineyards, and the Corbiere hills and plains. Although stated as 1.45hrs, we did it in 1hr exactly, so if it is 4km then we were walking on average at 4km / hr. Plenty of places to sit a muse. Probably best not to go after or during heavy rain due to muddy boots. Enjoy !!

Super little hike, easy and offering magnificent views of the Corbières. The cave is a must see.

Very nice little hike where we discover beautiful landscapes. The cave and the holey rock are nice to discover. I was able to notice that the gps trace is wrong because the path to follow is indicated in dotted lines on the map and it is not possible to follow the route, in any case we cannot go wrong by following the markings yellow. Thank you for this hiking trail
