THE LONG WAY AROUND FROM LEZIGNAN TO ESCALES AND BACK

From LEZIGNAN-CORBIERES in ESCALES

Itineray type : Foot

Descriptif détaillé :

The start of the hike is situated close to the car park of the ‘Sentier botanique’ (Botanical path, pine wood, Lézignan). You’ll follow the tarred road, pay heed to the markers. Leave the tarred road and take the large path to the right, abandon the path marked in yellow/yellow dot shortly afterwards. Here is the real start of the “Chemin des écoliers” (“The Long way around”) hike. Follow the large main path, then turn left (cypress tree in the middle of the junction), continue on the main path, walk through a section of the pine wood where the trees are rather scattered. Once you’ve arrived at a vineyard, walk alongside it to its right. Panoramic view on Escales and its Tower.
You’ll arrive at the wind turbine plateau. Follow the track which is suitable for motor vehicles to the right till you reach the 8th wind turbine. Between the 8th and 9th turbines, there is a small footpath descending to the right. Take this path downhill. A ‘capitelle’ (dry-stone cabin) can be seen to the left. Take a tarred path on your right. Continue straight ahead. At the junction with a road, turn right, follow the road (vineyards on both sides), leave the road and take the third path on the left. Walk along the edge of the vineyards, follow the main path which turns right, continue amidst the vineyards, then follow the pine wood path till you reach the intersection with the path of the Escales Tower. Return to Lézignan-Corbières following the same path.
