Descriptif détaillé :

Walk down the rue de Fontcalel, leave the village. Walk past the tennis court and down a beautiful avenue lined with plane-trees. At the end of this avenue, you’ll find the (1) Fontcalel spring and just behind that, a path goes up into the pine wood. Take this path for about 750 m. (2) At the sloping ledge, follow the road to your left and soon after, leave it to take an uphill path to the right, winding into the wood, surrounded by juniper and pine trees.
Heed the markers. You’ll be leaving the pine wood on the edge of some terraced plot with a nice view on the plain and the village of Fabrezan. This spot is called ‘Le Trote-Cos’.
The path continues alongside the plain, on red soil.
Again, pay close attention to the markers. Soon, you’ll be seeing the spur of the Alaric. Continue your hike just above a vineyard, walking right next to a hill situated to your right. (4) Back on the track, turn left towards Les Vals. Follow this path for about 1,6 km. On approaching the estate, you’ll be walking along the garrigue and some hills covered with box trees and cypress trees. The Alaric is in line of sight. (5) Returning to the trail, you’ll walk downhill towards ‘La Maillole’. (6) Get off the main trail and walk right alongside this hill on a path you’ll be leaving about 100 m further on. Climb up the slope to the left and continue above the vineyards.
Again, follow the markers carefully.
Walk downhill on a ramp layed-out on the trail, follow it going left then climb a slope to the right which will lead you to a rocky part just above the plain and some old quarries.
Again, heed the markers.
(7) You’ll get back on the trail underneath, take it to the right, and soon you’ll be back on the small route de Fontcalel.
Please take some time out to visit the small streets of this charming little village and start thinking about your next visit to the Mont Alaric you have been contemplating all along this hike.
