At DURBAN-CORBIERES

Itineray type : Foot

Theme : Cultural

Résumé :

Le cade tricentenaire, visible sur le parcours, a obtenu le 1er prix du concours "l’arbre de l’Aude".

Descriptif détaillé :

In front of the Town Hall, walk towards the D40. Cross it (1) and take the chemin du Moulin de la Cascade just on the other side. This road is situated between an olive tree plantation on the right and the ravine of the Pinède (pine wood) on the left. Continue straight ahead. Close to the first limestone rocks, the road becomes a footpath which will quickly lead you to the waterfall (dry in summer) and the ‘Moulin d’en Crabié’, which once used the streaming water as its driving force. Several artefacts are still on the site to prove it: the millstone and its basis which descends into the mill race. (2) The path is situated above the mill where a head race, used to sidetrack the water towards the mill, can still be found. The power of the water flow coming from the waterfall thus made it possible for the millstone to grind.
Follow the path uphill. You have some beautiful views on Durban and its castle. Next, you’ll take a path going down to the right.
(3) At the ford, the spring and its salutary coolness are worth the short detour. Follow the path. Just a little further on, a notice board informs you of the presence of a three-hundred year old cade juniper. We walk by this old tree and continue to follow this hike identified by yellow markers.
Follow the path uphill leading to the D40.
(4) At the road, go uphill for a couple of metres, then take the path leading to “Les Pausades”, “la Maison Botanique”. Walk past the buildings. At the crossroads (5), turn right on the downhill path overlooking the road. Between two vineyards, walk downhill to the right on a stony path, a real balcony with some magnificent panoramic views on Durban and its surroundings. The path cuts across a track (6). Continue straight ahead to the junction with the road below. Turn left on the road and, after a mere few metres, turn right again (7).
We join the road once again further down, then cross it once more. Continue downhill towards the village.

    Great hike! We started at the post office and walked the route clockwise. The 300 year old juniper tree is very cool and the views from the ridge looking down on Durban are stunning!!
