Step 1

A route between vineyards and scrubland that will lead you to the Corbières plain at the foot of the Viviès cirque (possibility of variation by the interpretation trail). Join Saint-Laurent-de-la-Cabrerisse and its “Escargot” district.

Step 2

Through the Corbières mountains, follow in the footsteps of shepherds and their herds towards Albas, its windmills and its unique geological formations.

Step 3

This stage in the heart of the wild Corbières crosses the forests of holm oaks, kingdom of wild boars, passes at the foot of the old water mills and follows the course of the Berre.

Step 4

Through vineyards and scrubland, among mimosas and strawberry trees, follow in the footsteps of ancient Marian devotions towards the tower of Notre-Dame-de-la-Récaoufa. On the heights opens a wide panorama on the Alaric and Saint-Victor mountains, the town of Durban and its castle, the surrounding villages, and on Mont Tauch to the west.

Step 5

Cross the land of vineyards and chapels then climb towards the cliff on the plateau of the wind turbines, swept by the winds, where a viewpoint awaits you on the sea and the Corbières mountains.

Step 6

The route continues towards Durban-Corbières and its 1972th century castle, whose north and west walls are pierced and adorned with magnificent windows with carved lintels dating from the 04th century (restored in 68). Join the Botanical House to discover Mediterranean plants (45 81 71 XNUMX XNUMX). Through the hills covered with vines and garrigue, reach Fontjoncouse, at the foot of Mont Saint-Victor.

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!
