Itinerary

1- Walk along the road “Chemin du Gril” to the end, and cross with care the D19. Go to the left and walk along the edge of the field, until you reach a asphalted road. Turn right and continue walking.

2- When you get to the sign-post “Pourquiers”, turn left on a grassy track which goes down hill. At the bottom of the slope, turn right and walk 200m

3- When you get up to the sign-post “Misterne”, go down the track opposite. Walk for about 1 km. At the next crossroads, turn left and walk up beside a wind-break hedge. Keep climbing for about 500m, until you reach a asphalted road where you will find the sign-post “Soucale”.

4- Cross the asphalted road to get onto the grassy track opposite. Go down, and then, up. When you get to the road turn left, go past two pretty farms, typical of the Lauragais region.

5- After the left-hand bend, carry on along the road.

6- When you get to the main road (D91), turn right and keep going until you get to the next crossroads. Turn left on the hair-pin bend, then, walk for about 200m. Turn right onto a dirt-track. Walk for about 1.5km until you reach the asphalted road. When you get to the big oak tree, at the left-hand hair-pin bend, go over the motorway bridge. Continue walking for 600m until you reach the sign-post “Misterne”. (cf.: stage3)

7- Turn right, taking the same road you came on until you get to the Six-blade windmill.
