At CASCASTEL-DES-CORBIERES

Itineray type : Mountain bike

Résumé :

Avis du vététiste : on a aimé la montée entre Coustouge et Jonquières, la montée vers le Moulin d’Albas.

Descriptif détaillé :

Situated in the heart of the eastern part of the Corbières, in between the sea and the hilltops, the “Ronde au Coeur des Corbières” (‘Around the Heart of the Corbières’), totals 212 km of marked trails.
The FFC Mountain Bike trails stretch out over 14 communes of the Durban-Corbières area and share parts of their trajectories with the ‘Sentier Cathare’, the ‘Cathar Trail’, the legendary and technical hiking trail.
The ‘Ronde’ displays some really authentic landscapes and an exceptional heritage.
Beginners and more experienced cyclists will enjoy riding on the different trails, along the vineyards, on the paths in the garrigue and the tracks all through the unspoilt Corbières.
We invite you to discover these varied trails in a protected natural site (Natura 2000 Network) and to take a break in the villages so as to enjoy the local products.
The trail
Take the D106, then follow a path uphill to the right and ride to Villeneuve-des-Corbières. D611, then D205 and follow the ‘Sentier Cathare’ uphill towards La Récaoufa. Technical descent (! horses) to Durban. Follow the D611 and cross the Berre stream. Ride uphill towards ‘Le Chamma’ and ‘Les Pausades’.
After the hamlet La Salce, a series of tracks. Ride uphill towards the Col de Vente Farine, quite difficult to tackle.
Ride down an old mule track, quite technical, until you reach the stream (! careful when crossing ).
You’ll arrive at Fontjoncouse. Rue de la Vignolle, then turn left and ride uphill. Ride through the garrigue. Leave Trail n° 6 towards Thézan to your right and continue your ride on Trail n° 2 in the direction of Coustouge.
After the Poursan sheepfold, ride down the twisting and turning trail until you reach the D323, then turn right till you get to Coustouge. Take a path uphill, cross the main road, continue to Jonquières. After the washtub, take the small road to the left along the reservoir. Continue till you reach the Serre de la Camp, cross the La Soulane stream (! very uneven), then gradually ride uphill on the ridge till you reach the Albas mill. Ride downhill on a twisting and turning trail till you reach the D40. Turn left and when in Albas, take the D106 to Cascastel.
