Ambiance

The village of Lapeyre, situated in the Sorgues valley, offers you to stride along the foothills of the Loubière plateau via the Frégière former plaster mine. This hiking loop follows rural and wooded trails, and on the way back, goes through a buissière (narrow passage between two lines of boxtrees). As you get closer to the plateau, look for the early signs of a changing landscape: the Rougier and its typical wine-coloured rocks are not far from here!

Access

From Saint-Affrique, follow the D7 towards Cornus. Once in Lapeyre, which is the first village you drive through, turn right towards Gissac and park your vehicle next to the graveyard.

Advice

Box tree months are active from May to October. During the caterpillar phase, they feed on the leaves of box trees. They crawl down trees and move on long silken threads, although these threads are annoying when hiking they do not pose any health risk
