THE VIVIES CIRQUE

At SAINT-LAURENT-DE-LA-CABRERISSE

Itineray type : Foot

Season : Autumn

Description :

Interpretative hike lined with several thematic information boards: be sure to admire the limestone cliff cirque of Viviès and its superb view on the Corbières; the accessibility amidst the vineyards all around; the village of Saint-Laurent-de-la-Cabrerisse with its “Escargot” (‘snail’) neighbourhood on the banks of the Nielle stream.

Descriptif détaillé :

From Saint-Laurent to the Cirque de Viviès, follow the yellow/green markers which are part of the “Ronde au Coeur des Corbières”.
Cross the “Escargot” neighbourhood, then walk past the Wine Cooperative. Across from the garage/filling station, cross the D613 and follow the small tarred road. Walk through a vineyard then along the small Espesolles brook. Walk up its slope and continue in a vineyard section (! Pay attention to the markers). You’ll reach the D106. Take this turning left then turn right, facing the Sabine estate. Ford the Rabet stream, walk round a vineyard then towards the sign indicating the start of the actual hike.
Take (1) the track in front of you. There are several thematic information boards here, dealing with: fauna, Mediterranean garrigue avifauna, flora, birds of prey and geology.
Turn (2) left, walk through a pine copse and uphill on a path growing steeper and more eroded along the way. Once you’ve reached the top, you’ll be firmly positioned on the ridge (there is a guardrail!). Here is a crossroads of several paths as well as the junction with the “Ronde au Coeur des Corbières” hike.
Turn left on the track going along the Cirque de Viviès. At the first crossroads, turn right and, after 150 m, turn left. Start going downhill, still on the main track.
After your descent, you’ll find yourself back amidst the vineyards. Take the track to the left (4): junction with the “Ronde au Coeur des Corbières” hike.
In a bend (view on the Rabet dam), go downhill to the left, follow a small and narrow path, cross the stream (footbridge) and return to the information board at the start of the hike.
The return to Saint-Laurent follows the same track, in opposite direction, as the first part of the hike.
