1- From the bastion, head towards the city center by the main street. Cross the restored hall by the street that goes down to the left. Cross the boulevard and go straight ahead.
2- Turn right on the tarmac path and arrive at the old washhouse. Continue and descend by a stony path that you follow for 1 km.
3- At a fork, go left towards "En Bordes". Leave the farm on your right and continue along a half-earth, half-stone path to the Raillère farm. Cross the courtyard (please respect the premises).
4- Go straight up the path through the pastures, then into the wood. At the “Barriot”, stay to the left to walk along the farm and down a dirt road (on the right, the private Pouy castle then the old Pouy mill).
5- Take the stone path on the left. Cross the driveway to the farm and the “Maison Neuve” rural gîte and continue straight ahead, descending for 400m - the old windmill on the right. Go up the steep slope to the asphalt road.
6- Take the road to the left and always follow straight for 2 km along a beautiful ridge road with views over Jégun and the Pyrenees. Pass the water tower and the Roses site. Arrive at the village and return to your starting point.
